Enterprises today are embracing Zero-Trust architectures to bolster the security of their critical infrastructure and applications. This strategic shift is a multi-year endeavor, driven by the need to prioritize safeguarding the most vital assets. Traditional Privileged Access Management (PAM) has long been the trusted solution for implementing Zero-Trust principles to protect applications and infrastructure.
The conventional PAM approach focused on securing privileged accounts through credential rotation when resource access was predominantly on-premises and strictly segmented, with well-established user identities. However, the landscape of identity security has evolved dramatically. With the rise of remote work, machine identities, and third-party vendor access, identity protection has become a dynamic challenge.
The outdated siloed architecture, which solely safeguarded privileged users on servers and applications, has proven inadequate, as demonstrated by security breaches like those affecting Okta, Lastpass, and Uber. These incidents underscore the vulnerability of stolen credentials and unauthorized access through over-provisioned VPNs, leading to breaches in backend infrastructure.
A robust Zero-Trust Security Posture (ZSP) architecture for securing applications and infrastructure must now incorporate the principle of least privilege across endpoints, access, and servers.
However, implementing a comprehensive ZSP architecture across these diverse elements requires coordination among various vendors, including Endpoint Privilege Management, Identity and Trust Access Management (ZTNA), and Server Privileged Access Management (PAM). For enterprises, this can lead to operational challenges, longer implementation times, reduced Security Return on Investment (ROI), and, often, failure to detect legitimate threats due to overlapping management consoles.
This is where Whiteswan’s ZSP platform shines. Our unified ZSP agent streamlines the process of securing endpoints and servers against identity-based attacks, facilitates passwordless trusted access, and enables just-in-time privilege grants.
The Whiteswan deployment stands out as the simplest in the industry. It eliminates the need for gateways, password vaults, and Yubi-keys, making it an efficient and effective solution for safeguarding your applications and infrastructure comprehensively.
Choose Whiteswan to fast-track your journey to a secure and resilient Zero-Trust Security Posture, ensuring that the right users and devices have trusted access to your critical applications and data.
