Determining which endpoint devices should be trusted is a unique decision made by each organization depending on their risk tolerance and compliance requirements. Different levels of trust are required for low-risk and high-risk resources; dependent on industry regulations and types of company and customer data that the organization collects and needs to protect.
Device trust is the process of analyzing whether a device should be trusted and therefore is authorized to do something. Today, it’s a nightmare to control which devices can access cloud resources like software-as-a-service (SaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS), and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). These cloud services are great because they’re turn-on-and-go, scalable, and easily accessible. Yet the bad news is that they’re easily accessible — from any web browser on any device!
Making matters more complicated, COVID-19 sped up the use of cloud services and spawned the move to a permanent hybrid workplace. Now that more and more sensitive, confidential information and important intellectual property resides in cloud services, there’s added complexity. Not to mention the workforce can log in from all types of devices, including personal computers, and shared computers, phones, and tablets.
With strong device trust in place, you can confidently control access to increasingly critical cloud applications and resources. Furthermore, you have laid down a foundational building block for your Zero Trust security architecture.
