Applying Zero-Trust Security to Cloud Workload Protection

Presented by

Willy Leichter, VP-Marketing and Product Strategy, Virsec

About this talk

As attacks on software supply chains and critical applications not only continue but accelerate, we need to extend a next-generation zero-trust model into cloud workloads during runtime. To understand why runtime remains a choice target for threat actors, look no further than the recent SolarWinds and Microsoft Exchange server attacks. Both exploits executed undetected and undeterred in runtime, easily evading existing security measures such as threat hunting and EDR/EPP tools. Zero trust is a powerful concept, but many think it only applies to users, devices, and networks. Implementing a next-generation Zero-Trust model, one that incorporates application-aware workload protection, can ensure that only the right code and processes can execute, regardless of the threat environment. In their Market Guide for Cloud Workload Protection Platforms, Gartner specifically recommends extending zero trust security, stating: “At runtime, replace antivirus-centric strategies with “zero-trust execution.” Join security experts from Virsec as they discuss the challenges of protecting an expanding attack surface area with cloud, hybrid, and container environments and detail the need for application-awareness and effective runtime protection. Get best practices for security implementations for workloads that ensure vulnerability protection with granular application control, system integrity assurance, and advanced memory protection at runtime.
