Continuous Adaptive Trust – The Space-Time Continuum of Application Security

Continuous Adaptive Trust – The Space-Time Continuum of Application Security

Application security is currently undergoing major changes. Web applications are being replaced by Apps. Application architectures are moving from monolithic to microservices. Infrastructure is migrating from virtualized to container and deployments move from on-site to the cloud. All these changes have huge implications for application security. Protecting against the OWASP Top 10 for Application security and API security is no longer sufficient. Identity is considered the new perimeter in a Zero Trust approach and as the new perimeter, identites must be checked continuously to ascertain that users are authorized for the services, functions, and data they want to access without detriment to the user experience. With Continuous Adaptive Trust (CAT) the verification of identities is taken to the next level by taking into consideration how a user’s context changes over the lifetime of a session. User authentication interactions are kept to the minimum while maintaining the security level required by the application. With CAT we are changing security from a static setup to dynamic protection. Learn about the benefits of continuous adaptive trust, how it works, and how to achieve it.
