Customers often ask me: What is the difference between Zero Trust and SASE? My answer is almost always the same: Nothing….and, everything. Both have taken the industry by storm over the last couple of years, and even more so with the security and access demands on the business driven by the existing remote workforce, but both have different implementation approaches. It is important to understand, however, that one does not fully provide the other; in fact, they reinforce each other.

The number of users, devices, and resources on company networks is growing exponentially. With this expanding attack surface, a company’s assets, intellectual property, reputation, staff and customer data are all at risk. It’s no wonder cybersecurity has increased in prominence, with many organizations investing in more sophisticated technical solutions. But just because you have all the network security solutions in place, it would be unwise to get complacent about your security posture.

Cyber-attacks are commonly viewed as one of the most severe risks to worldwide security. Cyber-attacks are not the same as they were five years back in aspects of availability and efficiency. Improved technology and more efficient offensive techniques provide the opportunity for cybercriminals to initiate attacks on a vast scale with a higher effect. Intruders employ new methods and launch more comprehensive strategies based on AI to compromise systems.

Endpoint security is at the forefront of digital transformation due to the very nature of needing to protect devices outside the company’s network perimeter. This started with traditional devices such as laptops and desktops. Endpoint security then quickly expanded to include mobile security, for smartphones and tablets. And, as more data moved to the cloud endpoint security came to include servers and containers, both inside and outside of the network perimeter.

Educational institutions are reaping the many benefits and new possibilities offered by online learning, but these new methods of educational instruction come with serious cyber security concerns. These institutions are also a prime focus for hackers because they often host a lot of sensitive data about teachers and students. Furthermore, schools and universities are an easy target because not every teacher or professor is technologically savvy.

What is still relatively unfamiliar to many organizations and their leadership, however, is the task of evaluating their cyber strategy and risk to determine how best to adapt and grow to stay secure while remaining competitive. Executives must initiate thorough evaluations of their existing cybersecurity strategies to figure out which types of new technologies and risk management strategies they need the most.

What is a strategy? As defined by Merriam Webster…. ‘a carefully developed plan or method for achieving a goal or the skill in developing and undertaking such a plan or method.’ A cybersecurity strategy is extremely important, but many organizations lack a strategy, or they have not kept their strategy and subsequent roadmap current. A strategy is especially important in this day of digital transformation and for key initiatives like Zero Trust.
