Forbes Tech Council – The Rise Of Zero-Trust Cybersecurity In A Multi-Cloud World

by | Mar 15, 2023 | Thought leadership

The adoption of multi-cloud strategies is growing at a rapid pace across the public and private sectors. This approach allows organizations to use multiple cloud computing services within a heterogeneous architecture, providing them with flexibility, scale, and the ability to leverage the strengths of different cloud providers while avoiding vendor lock-in.

However, as with any mainstream approach to technology infrastructure, multi-cloud adoption poses significant cybersecurity challenges. In response, the US Department of Defense (DoD) has emphasized the importance of the ‘zero-trust’ security model in its recent Joint Warfighting Cloud Capability (JWCC) contract with Google, Oracle, Amazon, and Microsoft.

The ‘zero-trust’ security model assumes that nothing interacting with IT infrastructure is trusted, whether inside or outside a network, and all access points are vulnerable to attack. The DoD plans to test the security capabilities of the four multi-cloud contractors with “red-team” attacks to evaluate the effectiveness of zero-trust security in a multi-cloud environment.

This approach to security has already become the go-to strategy for many organizations to ensure they can fully secure systems and data with maximum effectiveness. Success in the JWCC evaluation process could lead to broader adoption of zero-trust security and significant improvements in cybersecurity across various industries.

Raising the bar on file security

We believe people should be free to open their files without fear. To click on anything without risk of catastrophe. To use systems the way they were meant to be used. That’s why we’re raising the bar on file security at Glasswall.
