Visibility Is a Precondition for Zero Trust

The Zero Trust model helps reduce implicit trust — and risks. Discover insight, resources and tools for starting your Zero Trust journey.

Zero Trust Visibility — We’ve Got You Covered

In a world where the workforce is shifting towards a “work anywhere, work anytime” model, moving towards a Zero Trust Architecture simply makes sense.

The bedrock tenet of Zero Trust is to move your defensive perimeter from the edge of the network to assets within the network.

Visibility into all information in motion on the network is critical to supporting a comprehensive Zero Trust strategy.

Stages of the Zero Trust Journey

As a Critical First Step You Will Need to:

  • Identify and classify your data
  • Map flows of your sensitive data
  • Decrypt traffic for complete visibility (North-South and East-West)
  • Perform basic network segmentation
  • Understand your network topology
  • Inventory devices and applications

Leverage Visibility and Analytics Fabric™ with centralized SSL/TLS decryption to eliminate network blind spots and get insight into your network assets.

The Second Stage of Your Zero Trust Journey Will Require that You:

  • Build micro-perimeters around your sensitive data
  • Enforce micro-perimeters with controls
  • Validate access to resources and limit to confirmed identities and need
  • Create and enforce effective policies
  • Implement continuous authentication

Application Intelligence grants visibility into the usage of applications within the environment, enabling effective policy implementation.

Gigamon ThreatINSIGHT™ monitors the network and affects the Mean-Time-to-Detect and Mean-Time-to-Respond metrics, as well as performing detection and discovery of security hygiene issues in the environment — all of which directly affects policy.

During the Last Stage You Will Need to:

  • Implement a monitoring plane
  • Monitor for insider threats, credential theft, lateral movement and data exfiltration
  • Use network detection tools
  • Analyze decrypted traffic
  • Implement policies for automated response
  • Facilitate triggered response actions

Use network detection and response tools, like Gigamon ThreatINSIGHT, to detect, investigate and respond to threats in real time.
