Intelligent Cyberdefense … Prevention for the Real World

Zero Trust is the only cybersecurity strategy that prevents successful cyberattacks” – John Kindervag, Creator of Zero Trust, ON2IT SVP Cybersecurity Strategy

Plano, Texas and Zaltbommel, Netherlands, June 9, 2021

Today, ON2IT, the global managed security services company and Zero Trust innovator, announces an industry first: Zero Trust as a Managed Service.

Zero Trust was created by ON2IT Senior Vice President, John Kindervag, who developed the strategy while at Forrester Research. According to Kindervag, business critical assets are under attack by increasingly sophisticated internal and external cyberthreats and current IT security practices are insufficient tools for today’s cyberwar. Protecting critical assets requires relentless focus on prevention, underpinned by a strategy that reduces cybersecurity risk. Cyber resilience built on Zero Trust is the only strategy that reduces risk and prevents successful attacks.

Simplifying the Zero Trust Journey

As industry leaders deepen their commitment to Zero Trust to reduce asset risk, simplify operations and strengthen execution, they are facing challenges with operationalizing their Zero Trust Strategy and gaining access to both experienced Zero Trust resources and skilled cyber talent.

Addressing these challenges requires a fundamental shift in managed security services. It is time for a new category of cyber defense focused on prevention, based on Zero Trust, consumable and affordable. According to Kindervag, the building blocks of authentic Zero Trust have matured and can now be consumed as a service.

The Industry’s First Zero Trust as a Service

“Zero Trust is the best strategic cybersecurity approach there is, but it can be a long process that requires careful technology selection and implementation to get it right”, according to Dr. Chase Cunningham, Chief Strategy Officer (CSO) at Ericom Software. “To really succeed, I think most organizations should work with managed services that help your organization move intelligently towards success.”

ON2IT, a recognized industry leader in Zero Trust, is introducing the next innovation in cybersecurity services, Zero Trust as a Service (ZTaaS). With the introduction of AUXO, our redesigned cybersecurity platform, ON2IT now delivers Zero Trust via a tightly integrated and automated managed cybersecurity platform designed to both strengthen and simplify the protection of sensitive data and critical assets.
