Cisco Zero Trust Security

Establish trust at point of access

Cisco Zero Trust offers a comprehensive solution to secure all access across your applications and environment, from any user, device, and location. This complete zero trust security model allows you to mitigate, detect, and respond to risks across your environment. See how you can make your environment Cisco Secure today.

Products and solutions for Zero Trust

Zero trust is a strategic approach to security that centres on the concept of eliminating trust from an organisation's network architecture. . When approaching zero-trust design, it is easier to break it down into three areas: workforce, workload, and workplace.

Zero trust for the workforce

Make sure users and devices can be trusted as they access systems, regardless of location.

Zero trust for workloads

Prevent unauthorised access within application environments irrespective of where they are hosted.

Zero trust for the workplace

Secure access to the network and for any and all devices (including IoT) that connect to enterprise networks.

Benefits of a Zero Trust approach

Better visibility across your users, devices, containers, networks, and applications because you are verifying their security states with every access request.

Reduce your attack surface by segmenting resources and only granting the absolute minimum access needed.

Effectively detect and respond to threats with detailed logs, reports, and alerts.

Save time by automating threat containment based on any changes in the "trust level" and consistently enforce policy-based controls.

Adopting this model provides you with a balance between security and usability. Security teams can make it harder for attackers to collect what they need (user credentials, network access, and the ability to move laterally), and users can get a consistent and more productive security experience--regardless of where they are located, what endpoints they are using, or whether their applications are on-premises or in the cloud.

Slow down attackers trying to collect what they need (user credentials, network access, and the ability to move laterally).

Provide a consistent and more productive security experience for users, regardless of where they are located, what endpoints they are using, or whether their applications are on-premises or in the cloud.
