SolarWinds was one of the most heinous CyberSecurity attacks. At a recent SANS Summit on this subject, Mark Bristow, Branch Chief, Cyber Defense, US CyberSecurity Infrastructure Security Agency opined that:

  • Identity is the new perimeter – “the firewall is dead”.
  • Behavioral analysis techniques are required to identify an identity compromise.
  • AccuKnox’s zero trust principles are based on core tenets that prevent a SolarWinds like breach.
  • Zero Trust Security with Identity as the perimeter.
  • Flexible Policy Authoring and Governance Framework to ensure security and compliance.
  • Unsupervised learning-based platform for Anomaly Detection.

In the post-SolarWinds breach world that we live in, it is imperative that organizations implement Zero Trust Cloud.
