Lightstream’s Zero Trust Security Model prevents breaches and ransomware attacks

The 5-Step Model to Implementing Zero Trust

Strategic approach protects critical assets and reduces impact on any attacked areas

Business Challenges

A cyberattack or data breach is a nightmare scenario for every business or corporation. As cyberattacks become more automated and complex, IT and security departments face an event overload, lack of time and increasing staff cost. Once a data breach occurs, the clock is ticking.

Pressure to Respond Faster
Network administrators must be concerned with protecting their organizations from outsider threats, insider threats and malware. There is pressure to respond faster and mitigate threats before damage occurs.

In-house Talent Shortages
Cybersecurity is becoming increasingly difficult to manage in-house. Many IT and security departments have a shortage of trained and experienced security analysts.

Security Strategies Need to be Adaptable
The traditional security model is vulnerable. Organizations need a more advanced security strategy to reduce the time, cost and complexity of investigating and responding to security events and analyzing the root cause. Businesses need to lower risks and their impacts and achieve a higher return on investment for their cybersecurity spend.

The Zero-Trust Solution: Never Trust. Always Verify.

Lightstream takes the old phrase “trust, but verify” and flips it on its head with the Zero Trust Readiness Assessment. This is for businesses that don’t know where to start and is a strategic approach that helps prevent data breaches.

The Zero Trust Assessment Process
To begin, the Zero Trust Readiness Assessment looks at three organizational groups:

  1. Strategic
  2. Managerial
  3. Operations

STEP 2: Based on the results, Lightstream assesses gaps to develop a plan. It offers best-in-class solutions with deep integration of the platform across leading vendors including Palo Alto Networks, Fortinet, Cisco, Amazon Web Services, Azure, Google and VMware. Our endpoint protection is based on Palo Alto Networks Traps to block security breaches and ransomware attacks before they compromise endpoints. It also builds on the revolutionary Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR to provide Lifestream analysts and forensic specialists with threat intelligence, logs and data.

STEP 3: Within one week of completing the Zero Trust Readiness Assessment, you’ll receive a strategic advisory report. It will offer future improvements in the areas of strategic, managerial and operational levels. With that roadmap, you’ll have insight into your progress and next steps.

Addressing security challenges requires a fundamental shift in managed security services. Lightstream’s approach to cyber defense is focused on prevention and based on Zero Trust. Lightstream delivers the next generation of cloud-based security services in prevention, detection, response, forensics and threat-hunting.

Business Outcomes: Protect Your Critical Assets

The average cost of a data breach in the United States is $9.44 million[1]. Organizations with a Zero Trust security approach can potentially save $1.5 million compared to those that don’t, according to IBM Security’s “The Cost of a Data Breach Report.”[2]  With Lightstream’s Zero Trust Readiness Assessment, businesses can protect their critical assets and quickly reduce impacts of a cyberattack.

Make More Informed Security Decisions
The Zero Trust Readiness Assessment helps businesses make informed decisions about required actions, budgets and how to allocate resources. It’s developed using Zero Trust principles and enables execution of a quick and seamless strategy.
