The Trust Model is the basis of IT security. It guides the way in which data traffic is protected as it moves over networks and through Clouds. It determines which users gain access to which resources.

The traditional Trust Model is based on ownership of a network. This network is then protected by a firewalled perimeter to keep unauthorized people out. If a user or device is authenticated for access, then we assume they are trusted too. This concept is inherently flawed and dangerous, it creates a false sense of security. This Trust Model is completely broken.

Owning your own network doesn’t make it safe.

The vast majority of data breaches now occur as a result of user compromised credentials – providing a hacker with direct access to that trusted network.

The attackers become “trusted” insiders.

This is why the average data breach takes 150 days for the victims to detect. That’s an eternity to have a hacker loose in your systems. It’s why hundreds of millions of records are stolen every year, costing enterprises billions of dollars.
‘Private’ WAN services are typically multiple organizations’ connections delivered over a single shared managed service network using simple labels to separate customer traffic.  Basic misconfigurations can result in the networks of two or more organizations becoming merged; at which point ‘secure’ data is not only open to the service provider but also at the mercy of that organization’s security posture – or lack of it.  The ‘owned’ infrastructure is neither under the organization’s control nor secure.

IT security is broken because the Trust Model is broken.
