TL;DR: If you’ve decided to implement a control tower to centralize the “command and control” of your applications and resources, zero trust remains an important principle.
In this article you how zero trust is integrated into control tower environments and why it enhances your security posture.
Think of the air traffic controllers sitting in control towers at airports across the world. Their radar screens centralize data on all of the airplanes seeking to enter and exit their airspace. Air traffic controllers have one job: making sure planes enter and exit their airspace safely and securely.
A control tower in cybersecurity has the same role as an air traffic controller’s radar screen. It centralizes your security management and streamlines your incident response capabilities.
You might think that only large organizations with large digital footprints require a control tower, but that isn’t necessarily so. There are use cases for control towers in SMBs:
If you have centralized all of your systems in a control tower, you might think that you have a good enough handle on your security posture without implementing any other security measures.
The control tower centralizes your systems. But the security measures to “enter and exit” those systems don’t change just because they are now located within your “control tower radar.”
Zero trust principles, applied within the control tower, establishes a comprehensive and proactive security approach and enhances the security capabilities provided by the control tower:
