Akamai Guardicore Segmentation is a great fit for organizations that want to apply Zero Trust architecture principles to all of the communication flows within their trusted on-premises and cloud environments. The idea is to assume that compromised endpoints and data center and cloud infrastructure breaches are inevitable and use Zero Trust principles to prevent these incidents from escalating.
Of course, you can’t just flip a switch and lock down your endpoints and applications completely without disrupting your business, so Akamai offers a simple, phased approach.
Start by gaining detailed visibility into all of your IT assets – on-premises and in the cloud – and understanding how they communicate today. From there, you can design Zero Trust policies that will block all communication with the exception of flows that you explicitly allow.
