IT security at the highest level – with Zero Trust VPN from NCP
Businesses face cyber threats to their IT infrastructure every day. Many organizations are now planning IT security through a Zero Trust strategy to deal with evolving attack vectors. NCP VPN for Zero Trust is a perfect fit in this scenario.
What does Zero Trust mean?
Zero Trust is not a product, it is a general IT security approach that follows the principle of least privilege. Instead of trusting users and end devices blindly, Zero Trust ensures that users are only granted access to the data they need to do their current work. Zero Trust systems run in the background and check whether a user is authorized each and every time they access data.
How is Zero Trust different from other IT security concepts?
The Zero Trust approach leaves cybercriminals little room for manoeuvre, as even a successful attack can only gain access to a small part of the entire company network. Compromised network resources can be isolated and the threat neutralized without having to shut down the entire system.
How does the NCP Zero Trust VPN solutionfifit within a Zero Trust strategy?
NCP’s software-based VPN solutions are built on Zero Trust. Unlike other VPN products, NCP offers holistic network security, rather than just a secure connection to the company network. With NCP Secure Enterprise Management (SEM), IT administrators can configure access rights for user groups and individual users granularly. Through centralized access management, the NCP VPN fits seamlessly into the Zero Trust principle.
