The Zero Trust Mandate
The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) mandated a Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) strategy across agencies in the federal government. Requiring certain cybersecurity standards by 2024, the race is on for agencies to improve their security posture in the interest of national security. The current threat landscape compels agencies to no longer able depend on the conventional perimeter-based defense mechanisms for their critical data and infrastructure. Conversely, transitioning to a “Zero Trust” security approach provides a defensible architecture for effectively handling the modern-day cybersecurity threats.
Adapting to the New Cybersecurity Environment
Karsun’s zero trust architecture solutions address those challenges faced by both agencies building new systems and agencies modernizing legacy systems. Our service mesh based ZTA requires minimal retrofit, while addressing agency needs. A technology agnostic solution, it can be deployed in systems that were not initially designed to be containerized.
Continuous ATO and Zero Trust
Achieve continuous ATO (cATO) and meet zero trust objectives with the inclusion of Open Security Controls Assessment Language (OSCAL) into your DevSecOps toolchain. Use OSCAL for documenting controls while automating most aspects of the ATO process. Discover how our implementation of well-architected principles, including OSCAL, aids in adoption of zero trust with this blog from Karsun DevSecOps expert Judewin Gabriel.
