Taking the Microsoft Zero Trust approach

Microsoft created the Zero Trust Model to fulfil the need for a new security model that more effectively adapts to the complexity of the modern environment, embraces the hybrid workplace, and protects people, devices, apps, and data wherever the location. 

Instead of assuming everything behind the corporate firewall is safe, the Zero Trust model assumes breach and verifies each request as though it originates from an open network. Regardless of where the request originates or what resource it accesses, Zero Trust teaches businesses to "never trust, always verify." Before granting access, every access request is fully authenticated, authorised, and encrypted.

Zero Trust principles

Verify explicitly

  • Always authenticate and authorise based on all available data points, including user identity, location, device health, service or workload, data classification, and anomalies.

Use least privileged access

  • Limit user access with just-in-time and just-enough-access (JIT/JEA), risk-based adaptive policies, and data protection to help secure data and productivity.

Assume breach

  • Minimise blast radius and segment access, verify end-to-end encryption and use analytics to get visibility, drive threat detection, and improve defenses.

As a Proud Partner of Microsoft, few distributors can provide Microsoft products to our high standards of efficiency.
