A large part of Federal IT modernization practices has included incorporation of off-the-shelf technologies to reduce cost, increase flexibility and integrate access to multiple networks into a single entry-control-point. Multi-domain and cross-domain access methods have continued to increase, however traditional perimeter-based network security is increasingly irrelevant and inadequate to support these complex access environments. Enter the Zero trust methodology that modifies the traditional access practices to incorporate identity, authorization, and authentication principles whereby users and devices must be continually evaluated and prove their identities to gain access to your network and data. CDW•G zero trust methodologies add multiple layers of controls to users, devices, applications, and networks to ensure a “least privilege” approach that carefully balances limited access with the ability to work productively across multiple domains from multiple locations. And enhances visibility through data analytics delivers valuable insights on who is accessing your data and networks and, further minimizes risk while maximizing control over your entire environment.
