Zero-trust security is a term that has gained increasing popularity in recent years as companies have become more aware of the need to protect sensitive information. Essentially, zero-trust security means that no one is automatically trusted, even if they are within the company’s network, and that every single individual or device requesting access to the network must be verified before being granted access. This includes when a user attempts to install software. Zero-trust will prevent unauthorized software from being installed on company property without approval. This approach is critical in preventing unauthorized access to vital information and protecting against cyberattacks, plus, it helps to keep your staff more productive by only allowing work computers to have work related software installed.
However, implementing zero-trust security is not a simple task. It requires significant expertise and resources to properly set up and maintain the required infrastructure. This is where a Managed Service Provider (MSP) can be invaluable. By working with a MSP, businesses can ensure that they have access to the necessary expertise and resources to implement a robust zero-trust security framework.
Here are a few reasons why all businesses should work with a MSP to ensure their vital information is secure with zero-trust security:
- MSP’s have the expertise and experience needed to properly configure and maintain a zero-trust security framework with little to no impact on day-to-day operations, and they can help businesses identify potential vulnerabilities and develop strategies to address them at the same time.
- MSP’s can help businesses reduce the risks associated with insider threats. Zero-trust security means that even employees within the company’s network are not automatically trusted, and MSP’s can help businesses monitor and control access to sensitive information to prevent unauthorized access.
- MSP’s can help businesses stay up-to-date with the latest security threats and trends. Cybersecurity is a constantly evolving field, and Managed Service Providers can help businesses stay ahead of the curve by implementing the latest security and productivity technologies and best practices.
An MSP can help businesses implement and maintain zero-trust security protocols, which can include multi-factor authentication, network segmentation, and continuous monitoring. These measures can greatly reduce the risk of data breaches and other cybersecurity incidents.
In addition, MSP’s can provide ongoing support and training to employees, ensuring that everyone understands the importance of data security and how to maintain it. This can include regular security assessments, employee training sessions, and 24/7 support in case of an incident.
