Enforce a Zero-Trust model to avoid malicious apps

 

What is zero-trust you ask?

 

A huge obstacle many connected organizations face on the cyber-threat front is improper or non-existent delegation of administrative rights and permissions across the network. In a proper configuration, the principle of least privilege is followed. This means an employee’s unique user account is only able to perform tasks that are essential to their job. Not every employee should be able to add or remove software or download anything from any website they want.

To give an example, Microsoft created a component of Windows called UAC, or User Access Control. UAC is the box that pops up on your screen asking you to click Yes or No anytime the computer is about to make a change. On a business network, UAC should require more credentials, like the password of the individual specifically designated and trained to be the Network Administrator. User Access Control depends on the person sitting at the keyboard to make wise choices and avoid mistakes that could cost a fortune to recover from. Unfortunately, that’s not enough! Our Zero-Trust Locker is a value-added software service that prevents unauthorized changes to your business systems. It doesn’t guarantee a virus or an attack from occurring, however, it does add another layer of security.
