iboss Zero Trust, Purpose Built to Protect Organizations from Breaches and Data Loss

Phishing remains the most common threat channel for ransomware. We can use technology to defend ourselves from phishing. However, the best defense against any type of phishing assault is user awareness and training to be on the alert for things like phishing URLs. It is impossible not to be concerned about ransomware once it has infiltrated an organization. So we really want to use strategies to prevent it from happening in the first place. Yes, you can get better. You can pay the ransom, but the more you pay, the more risk controls we can implement to prevent this from happening in the first place.

“Everybody’s a target,” says Simon Eappariello, Senior Vice President, Product & Engineering EMEIA at iboss, during his talk at the 6th CXO Tech Summit currently being held today at Dusit Thani Mactan Cebu.

“Everybody has credentials, whether it’s credit card information, whether it’s personal information about our customers, whether it’s r&d company, confidential information. So every type of those are always going to be a target,” briefly explained by Simon.

Attackers now have easy access to applications, data, and services that have moved from the datacenter to the cloud. Users have left the office and are working from home or wherever they like.

The iboss Zero Trust SSE is focused on protecting sensitive resources by making them completely inaccessible and invisible to attackers while strictly granting access to trusted and approved users from wherever they work. With the surface area of protected applications, data and services reduced to zero and only accessible through the iboss Zero Trust SSE, cyber risk is greatly reduced, breaches and data loss are prevented and visibility and security are delivered consistently throughout the organization.

According to Simon, we are responsible for achieving zero trust. We are responsible for creating a zero trust paradigm starting with the design phase and architectural phase. For businesses, that is appropriate. There are already zero trust policies in place in many organizations. In other words, whether there is a policy that specifies the kind of gadget that may be used, when, and how. That is the idea of zero trust.

“But what we want to think about in advance is what is my zero trust architecture looked like? And then, using technologies such as SSE, that can help us consolidate, it can help cost reduction, and it can help us to manage as well, the fewer consoles we need to administrate. If we can consolidate that big range of security lights and put it in somewhere in the cloud, and have a single pane of glass security tools that can help us manage threats and reduce our risk landscape as well,” Simon added.

Ransomware will always be the No. 1 threat for every organization

Ransomware is a type of malicious software that encrypts an organization’s critical data, rendering it inaccessible, and then demands a ransom payment from the victim to receive a decryption key. The impact on organizations can be devastating, leading to data loss, operational disruptions, reputational damage, and significant financial losses. Ransomware attacks can paralyze business operations, compromise sensitive information, and often require organizations to make difficult decisions between paying the ransom or attempting to recover their data through costly, time-consuming processes. Moreover, these attacks can undermine trust and confidence in an organization’s cybersecurity capabilities, potentially driving customers, partners, and stakeholders away.

What the iboss Zero Trust SSE does is it allows all protected resources inside an organization to be labeled and categorized, including Security Objectives and Impact Levels. Organizations can then have a clear awareness of the locations of sensitive apps and data, as well as information on the people and assets interacting with those resources. The NIST 800-207 Zero Trust architectural Special Publication, which serves as the Policy Decision & Enforcement Point for the NIST Zero Trust architectural model, is implemented by the iboss Zero Trust Service in accordance with the NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF).

“Zero trust is not a product. It’s definitely a set of principles. It’s definitely something that we need to build into our architecture in that future. Yes, we use products to use technology in zero trust, but again, it’s a set up principles. And the more of those technologies that you can have in a single security age, the simpler your zero trust architecture will be. So today we deliver this in the cloud. We delivered this on premise. We support hybrid deployments, we support on premise deployments. But the main thing is this is a single platform that employs all of the technologies needed for you to be able to implement a zero trust architecture.”

CXO Tech Summit is a yearly gathering of technology companies and IT leaders, as well as CIOs and end users, who are navigating the future of digital business.The summit is happening until October 21, 2023
