Stamping Out the Bad Actors: Zero Trust Architecture Explained


In the business world where connectivity knows no bounds, the concept of ‘circle of trust’ is obsolete. Bad actors are already inside the network.


Zero Trust Architecture isn’t just a buzz-phrase; it’s a philosophy reshaping the way organisations approach data integrity and cybersecurity.


In today’s hybrid work environment, data lives in the cloud with users accessing services from around the world, at home, at the office and on the move . Often, these services are needed by employees who are bringing their own devices.


Zero Trust pivots on the principle of ‘never trust, always verify’. Unlike traditional models reliant on perimeter-based security, Zero Trust mandates continuous authentication and authorization for all users and devices, regardless of their location or network status.


How Zero Trust Differs


Traditional security models assume trust once a user or device crosses certain security checkpoints. Zero Trust, however, dispels the notion of implicit trust, adopting a principle of least privilege. Users and devices access only what they absolutely need, with their activities continually monitored, ensuring security is maintained throughout their session.


Critical Components of Zero Trust Architecture


Implementing Zero Trust solution via Velocity involves five key components:


1. Identity and Access Management (IAM): Robust IAM ensures only authorized users access specific resources.


2. Micro segmentation: Dividing the network into isolated segments limits potential attack surfaces.


3. Continuous Monitoring and Analytics: Detecting anomalies and potential threats through constant monitoring.


4. Encryption: Ensuring data remains secure at rest and in transit.


5. Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR): Automating threat detection and response expedites incident remediation.


Enhanced Security and Reduced Breach Risks for Velocity’s Clients


Zero Trust Architecture significantly reduces the risk of cybersecurity breaches for Velocity’s clients by continuously verifying the legitimacy of every access request. Even in the event of a breach, the damage is contained, as attackers can’t access critical systems or move laterally within the network.




1. Improved Visibility and Control: Enhanced monitoring and analysis offer insights into potential vulnerabilities, crucial for Velocity’s clients.


2. Scalability and Adaptability: A security framework designed to grow with evolving needs aligns with Velocity’s commitment to providing adaptable solutions.


3. Regulatory Compliance: Adherence to data protection standards such as GDPR, HIPAA, CCPA, and CMMC is a critical consideration for Velocity’s clients.


By integrating these principles into client’s cybersecurity infrastructures, Velocity can more effectively safeguard client’s valuable data resources and establish a fortified security stance for the future.


Your digital resilience starts with a simple conversation.


What Are Zero Trust Networks and Global Secure Access?


In today’s digital world, you need to protect your data and identity from cyber threats, while also accessing the resources and services you need. Whether you are an individual, a business, or a government, you face the challenge of balancing security and convenience in a complex and dynamic environment. How can you achieve this without compromising your privacy or performance?


One solution is to use Zero Trust networks and global secure access. Zero Trust networks are decentralized networks that use blockchain technology and Zero Trust Architecture to enable secure and private communication and collaboration across any device, platform, or location. Global secure access is a service that leverages Zero Trust networks to provide seamless and encrypted access to any application, website, or network, without requiring VPNs, firewalls, or passwords.


With Zero Trust networks and global secure access, you can enjoy the benefits of digital resilience, such as:


Enhanced security: You can protect your data and identity from hackers, malware, and unauthorized access, by using end-to-end encryption, multi-factor authentication, and verifiable credentials.


Improved privacy: You can control your own data and identity, by using self-sovereign identity, anonymous transactions, and selective disclosure.


Increased convenience: You can access any resource or service you need, by using single sign-on, smart contracts, and peer-to-peer connections.


Reduced cost: You can save money and time, by using low-latency, high-bandwidth, and scalable networks, without relying on intermediaries or central authorities.
