Symantec and Aurora: A Winning Combination

This is the 2nd blog in a 3-part series.  You can read the first blog here.

SASE and Zero Trust

Adaptability is critical to business success always, and especially this past year. At Aurora, we are amazed by how we have seen customers adapt to the challenges they have been presented. Most notably, our customers are working remotely, storing and accessing data in the cloud, and shifting their business models to accommodate the “new normal.”

 With every change in the way a business operates, new challenges can arise. As a security consulting company, it is our responsibility to provide the services and consulting required to make sure that our customers are conducting business in a way that is as secure as possible.  Our customers are constantly adapting to changes in technology and therefore require updates to their security portfolio to match. They frequently ask us: how can my security portfolio reach the demands of today? Lately, this has led to several conversations surrounding Secure Access Service Edge (SASE).

By implementing Symantec solutions, we can help them achieve an environment that is compliant with the SASE framework, helping them to be better protected.

The SASE architecture is designed to enforce security at a network level and enables uniform security across all platforms regardless of endpoint of SaaS capabilities. It has been identified as the next era of security, helping users be better protected from anywhere.  We recognize that security is different for every organization. Aurora uses a consultative approach to help our customers meet their business goals and address their complex security challenges. By implementing Symantec solutions, we can help them achieve an environment that is compliant with the SASE framework, helping them to be better protected.

But where does SASE fall within the Zero Trust framework?

Since 2010, the Zero-Trust model has been the de-facto security approach that should be supported and implemented by the controls available in the SASE architecture.  Zero Trust is centered on the belief that organizations should not automatically trust anything inside or outside its perimeters and must verify everything to connect to its resource before granting access. Combining Symantec CloudSOC CASB and Symantec Secure Access Cloud enables the controls required by the Zero Trust framework.  In this case, both the SASE framework and Zero Trust frameworks can operate as a duo, helping you to establish a stronger security posture in the cloud and on-premise.

Of course, Zero Trust starts with a well-defined strategy.  Aurora works to help our clients achieve the best business outcomes. We start with the question: who needs access to what? We then prioritize the capabilities of your current environment, conduct an assessment to see what your posture is, and then provide the best consultative engagement when implementing new solutions like SASE.
