The modern enterprise is rapidly evolving from an on-prem network with a hard-shell security perimeter to a network of networks – and the diverse devices that form them. Are there devices that stand out as higher risk? If so, what is the business impact and how do we manage the risk?
Forescout’s Zero Trust approach to managing risk
Once you understand the riskiest devices on your network, it’s essential to manage the risks they pose. The Zero Trust framework has emerged as the foundational best practice to do just that.
Forescout’s zero trust approach to managing IoT risk involves the following best practices:
•Complete network visibility – a critical component for identifying and classifying IoT and other devices on the campus network, in the data center and the cloud. Actionable visibility provides the weapons that security teams need to proactively protect devices.
•By designing trust zones for IoT devices before putting them on the network, you can define appropriate communication policies for those devices and detect any anomalous activity, thus limiting the risk exposure and reducing the blast radius.
•Continuous monitoring is vital for detecting any configuration changes. With passive detection capabilities, IoT devices can be watched carefully, reducing potential business disruptions. Should an incident occur, the appropriate automated response can swiftly mitigate the incident and prevent the impact from spreading across the enterprise.
