New Deloitte Service Facilitates Zero Trust Adoption


New Deloitte Service Facilitates Zero Trust Adoption

By Greg Tavarez

Cloud environments are a huge attraction for bad actors, and organizations are more widely adopting zero trust as a strategy to reduce the attack surface and mitigate the impact and severity of cyberattacks.

Deloitte announced it is launching its Zero Trust Access service to facilitate zero trust adoption to protect organizations’ applications, infrastructure and data. The managed service, available standalone, integrated with other Deloitte offerings or as part of a broader solution leveraging technologies from Deloitte's alliances ecosystem, will connect users to applications through a frictionless cloud-native solution that is inherently scalable, resilient, agile and secure.

"Zero Trust Access was built as a turnkey managed service helping ourselves and our clients accelerate adoption of this transformative security framework,” said Andrew Rafla, Deloitte Risk & Financial Advisory's zero trust offering leader and principal, Deloitte & Touche. “Our goal was to create a cost-effective solution that can be delivered standalone or complementary to a broader ecosystem and ultimately help decrease the burden on IT and security teams."

The managed service can replace remote access solutions inclusive of VPN, virtual desktop infrastructure and desktop as a service, which typically require capital expenditure for infrastructure, high operating costs and technology management overhead.

Zero Trust Access will include shirt-lived connectivity built upon secure peer-to-peer communication, conditional access and continuous authorization. Robust data protection will be consistently applied to each session, regardless of the type or location of the applications.

"We're launching Zero Trust Access as the first in many adoption-enabling services and solutions to come, so that our clients are better able to modernize their security programs, enable agile operations and confidently advance with emerging technologies and transformative risk management principles that can build more resilient security practices," said Deborah Golden, Deloitte Risk & Financial Advisory Cyber and Strategic Risk leader and principal, Deloitte & Touche LLP

With the implementation of Zero Trust Access, organizations will be able to leverage outcome-based solutions that improve business agility, enhance user productivity and reduce cost and complexity of security operations.
