Easy Implementation of Zero Trust Security

Deploy on Existing Infrastructure

Protection when Network is Compromised

Zero Trust security is modern security for the modern enterprise.

The billions of records and billions of dollars lost in data breaches prove that traditional security architectures are broken.

Zero Trust assumes that any network, device, user or application could be compromised. A Zero-Trust Security architecture is designed to prevent a full-blown breach in that context.

Enterprises and governments around the world are embracing Zero Trust. Retailers, financial service firms, health care providers and others are adopting it. Lawmakers in the United States publicly advocated Zero Trust in the wake of the massive data breach at the U.S. Office of Personnel Management.

Zero Trust with Zero Impact

Certes Zero-Trust Security (ZTS) Platform enables you to quickly and easily adopt Zero Trust security.

  • 100% Software-Defined
  • No network changes
  • No application changes
  • “Bring Your Own Trust” based on user identity, keys, credentials
  • Trust is not based on infrastructure
  • Trust is not enforced in infrastructure

In breach after breach, attacker have compromised a single user. The user became a steppingstone into the enterprise when attackers used their credentials.

Attackers posing as “trusted insiders” go undetected for months. This is because once a user is authenticated as trusted, they have unfettered access to the trusted network and systems.

Adopting Zero Trust security with the Certes ZTS Platform solves this problem.


Attackers may compromise a user. But each user ‘s access is limited on a “Need to Know” basis. Users only get access to the applications they specifically need to do their jobs.

The ZTS Platform is software-defined so it controls access and protects applications with no changes to the network or applications.

It offers the industry’s first Bring Your Own Trust capabilities to fix the broken Trust Model.

Trust Evolved: Bring Your Own Trust

Bring Your Own Trust (BYOT) is a strategy for fixing the broken Trust Model. With BYOT, you alone define and control trust.

The basis of trust changes from whether you own a network or a device. Instead the Trust Model is built on user identity, keys and credentials that you alone own and control.

  • Trust is decoupled from perimeter & infrastructure
  • No assumed trust because of any infrastructure owned or controlled
  • Trust is built around the keys you own, not the boxes
  • Security becomes elastic, extending beyond perimeter to follow users and apps
  • ”Over the Top” Trust Overlay built around user identity, keys and credentials
