Secure Your Cloud with Zero Trust

Zero Trust Architecture Use Cases

1. Cloud Platform Adoption

Implementing Zero Trust principles for cloud services.

Define the ZT Gateway

Set up access control points for safeguarding cloud environments.

Validate User and Entity Policies

Ensure strict verification before granting asset access.

Apply SAML Authorization

Use SAML for secure and seamless authentication.

Handle ZT Gateway Requests

Integrate ZT gateway with SAML providers for secure access control.

2. Staff Access Management

Control and monitor internal access to cloud or hybrid environments.

Monitor Root Account Access

Use MFA to oversee critical account access.

Administrators Implement ZT Policies

Enforce Zero Trust principles on accounts and services.

Hide Root and Subscription Accounts

Protect core accounts by policy-based concealment.

Reduced Visibility

Minimize public exposure to decrease potential attack vectors.

3. External/3rd Party Remote Access

Manage access for external service providers securely.

Leverage ZT Policies

Implement comprehensive Zero Trust controls.

Authenticate External Users and Devices

Carefully validate third-party access requests.

Determine Access Privileges

Give precise access based on necessity.

Prevent Lateral Movement

Restrict asset visibility to combat unauthorized access.

Reduce Supply Chain Risk
