IT security is changing. The old model of automatically trusting users and devices which are “inside the network” makes little sense when your staff are working from a variety of locations and devices.
Cloud Consultant @ CTS
Global Head of Sales @ BeyondCorp Enterprise
Join CTS and Google Cloud on the 14th March where we will do a deep dive into the security of your network.
CTS will be joined by Kevin Powell, Global Head of Sales at BeyondCorp Enterprise, in a fireside chat to answer your questions on the future of security.
This is a great opportunity to hear first hand how Google themselves have been on the zero trust journey for nearly 10 years and how it benefits them.
What is Zero Trust?
IT security is changing. The old model of automatically trusting users and devices which are “inside the network” makes little sense when your staff are working from a variety of locations and devices. Zero trust means there is no “inside” or “outside” of your network – instead, a corporate IT asset can only be accessed based on the context of the user, request and the device.
Zero trust assumes there is no implicit trust granted to users, devices, applications, services and assets based on physical location, network location, or asset ownership. Zero trust focuses on the context of the access request, protecting resources, not network segments; network location is no longer a core component of enterprise security posture.
The US Government, for example, has mandated that all their government departments must use the zero trust model by the end of 2024. This is putting pressure on all companies globally to take action too. If your business doesn’t have a strategy, it risks getting left behind.
The good news is, you already have the tools to start your journey to zero trust if you use Google Workspace or Google Cloud.
Why is zero trust important?
As businesses continue to adapt to remote based working, there are greater risks of data breaches across a wider variety of networks and devices. With approximately 71% of workers currently working from home and 75% of corporate applications being web based are you thinking about zero Trust?

What is BeyondCorp?
BeyondCorp is Google’s implementation of the zero trust model. It builds upon a decade of experience at Google, combined with ideas and best practices from the community. By shifting access controls from the network perimeter to individual users, BeyondCorp enables secure work from virtually any location without the need for a traditional VPN.
It’s not just for Google Cloud though
BeyondCorp Enterprise has its foundations in Google – but it’s not just for Google Cloud. It is cloud-agnostic, so you can use the same access policies for your AWS or Azure cloud, all your SaaS applications, and all your desktop applications too.
