The continued, high frequency of successful cyber-attacks against today’s enterprises has made it abundantly clear that traditional, perimeter-centric security strategies are no longer effective. There is inadequate visibility, control and protection of user and application traffic transiting high-risk network boundaries, and an outdated assumption that everything on the inside of an organization’s network should be trusted.
In 2010, Forrester introduced to the world the new paradigm for network designs, called the Zero Trust Network. Ever since, it has been widely adopted by leading security and networking vendors.
By establishing Zero Trust boundaries that effectively compartmentalize different segments of the network, you can protect critical intellectual property from unauthorized applications or users, reduce the exposure of vulnerable systems, and prevent the lateral movement of malware throughout your network.
Deploying Safe-T’s RSAccess as a Secure Access Gateway removes the need to open any ports within the Zero Trust Network front-end perimeter (external) firewall between two network segment and between the Segmentation Gateway and MCAP segments, while allowing secured access through the internal firewall. Making it a perfect fit to complement and enhance then Zero Trust Network segmentation paradigm, further improving and securing it
This is done without changing existing infrastructure or applications and thus removing the need to use a front-end perimeter firewall. RSAccess Secure Access Gateway allows passing traffic between the two segments on an outbound firewall rule.
RSAccess Secure Access Gateway revolutionizes the Zero Trust Network design. By deploying RSAccess as a central technology in the core network segment, organizations gain the ability to not only keep sensitive segments separate and small, but also to ensure that only outbound communication takes place, thus enhancing the security of the model.
