Protecting Your Network: Solving Existing Vulnerabilities with Zero Trust
In 1995 we surfed the Web using Netscape, connected to the web with a land-line modem and used HTTPS to protect our data in flight. In 2021, we have our choice of browsers, our cell phones have gigabit speed, but the dirty little secret of cybersecurity is that we are still using the same 30 year old protocol to secure our data as it moves. If this doesn’t sound secure that’s because it isn’t. With the recent Solar Winds hack the vulnerability of our secrets is more apparent than ever.
Collectively, we have a blind spot that is affecting every online communication or transaction from banking to healthcare to any industry sending sensitive information over the internet. New ways of thinking about the problem are required to innovate new solutions.
KnectIQ will discuss why these existing solutions keep failing and a fundamentally new approach to securing data in flight that removes the single largest threat surface to the security of end to end encryption. With this new, Zero Trust based approach data is not only far more secure, but verifiably so and threats can be detected in real time, even with compromised credentials.
Cybercriminals aren’t using 30 year old solutions and neither should you.
