Network as the first line of defense
Continuity of any business nowadays relies heavliy on the security of its IT systems. Everything is connected, meaning connectivity should be the main priority when it comes to security policies! The best approach? Zero trust!
The ideal network should be a utility, where bandwidth latency, security and even encryption already have been dealt with. Although some carriers already protect their customers against DDoS, phishing, spam or malware by offering so called ‘clean pipes’. In the end network quality is still the responsibility of the enterprise, or network management services provider. The best rule of thumb: Enforce zero trust policies! Do not trust any fireign network access, only allow access to people, devices and processes that are known, checked and monitored.
