Why implement zero trust security?

Your business gives multiple users access to your company's resources. And despite the different goals and needs of these employees, partners, clients and customers, they all require some level of access to corporate information. The number of connections and resources you need to manage make user verification complex. 

Moving to a hybrid, multicloud infrastructure means your resources are also likely scattered throughout multiple IT environments with varying levels of visibility and control. It’s difficult to know if the right user has the right access to the right data. You need context to help you make the right decisions.

Equally concerning is the prevalence of malicious activity, such as ransomware and phishing, that puts your network, digital assets and business at risk. According to the IBM Cost of Data Breach Report, costs surged 10% from last year.

An IBM zero trust security strategy can help organizations increase their cyber resiliency and manage the risks of a disconnected business environment, while still allowing users access to the appropriate resources. It’s a model and plan that uses context to securely connect the right users to the right data at the right time under the right conditions, while also protecting your organization from cyber threats.
