Through All-Threat™ Campaign, Ardalyst Announced Zero Trust Architecture Solution
Ardalyst | March 02, 2022
In May 2021, the Biden administration issued an Executive Order (EO) to tighten cybersecurity across the federal government, following a series of high-profile cyber attacks. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued the document "Moving the United States Government Toward Zero Trust Security Principles" in February 2022. It lays out strategic goals for moving the federal government to a Zero Trust Architecture and requires agencies to produce a strategy to implement it, as well as designate a Zero Trust lead for each agency.
Ardalyst is pleased to announce a concentrated effort to deliver an All-ThreatTM Strategy approach to Zero Trust Architectures as a means of supporting government agencies and federal contractors in attaining cyber resiliency, depending on collaboration with partners at Mandiant and Microsoft.
This endeavour will create a Zero Trust security system, which recognises that security systems can be hacked.
The EO specifies that Zero Trust principles will be embedded in any software purchased by the federal government or used by its contractors. To do so, the EO requires a review of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR). Due to changes to the FAR and, by extension, the DFARS, defence contractors will need to include Zero Trust Architecture into their communication and collaboration platforms in order to continue doing business with the DoD.
By the end of Fiscal Year (FY) 2024, agencies must accomplish particular zero trust security goals. Identity, Devices, Network, Applications, and Data are the five pillars to which it applies.
The Ardalyst All-ThreatTM Zero-Trust Architecture is an intelligence-led strategy to defending your company against all tiers of cyber threats in a presumed hostile environment.
The All-Threat solution is a comprehensive approach that combines Microsoft's Zero Trust Architecture, Endpoint Security, and Mandiant's Threat Intelligence to build a layered security environment that is resilient against several tiers of hostile attacks.
