Zero Trust is increasingly relevant for industrial control systems, as technologies and have blurred or dissolved the idea of a traditional firewall and network-zoned perimeter. The seismic shift to remote working has also accelerated the demise of the traditional perimeter and is driving an increased focus on Zero Trust.
NIST's guidelines provide a clear playbook for organizations seeking guidance on how to adopt zero trust principles. Many organizations have begun to embrace zero trust frameworks and are building these into their security strategies.
BeyondTrust Privileged Remote Access helps organizations adopt a Zero Trust approach by:
- Enforcing the philosophy of least privilege for remote access sessions
- Treating managed devices with the same level of trust as an unmanaged device – which is zero
- Providing application access independent of network access
- Recording all activities performed using remote access and disabling functionality such as copy/paste
- Enabling API security to protect the integrity of data being sent from IoT devices to back-end systems
Applying the granularity of Privileged Remote Access to achieve Zero Trust objectives ensures all access is appropriate, managed, and documented, regardless of how the perimeter has been redefined.
