The drive towards Zero Trust Networking

The adoption of cloud technologies and applications has left the traditional perimeter and on-premise approach to security no longer fit for purpose. Employees aren’t based just in the office anymore – they’re working from home, now at a scale never before seen. This shift to the cloud and a modern, and likely long-term, way of working requires a modern approach to security, one driven by a ‘Zero Trust’.

At Xalient, we have deep expertise and experience in helping organisations move towards Zero Trust, with a range of services and solutions to secure your organisation’s shifting security perimeter and manage access and identity to your global network to ensure the overall security of your people, your assets and your firm’s reputation. Never before has the need to secure your network been more vital or more urgent.

Xalient can help you get there quickly, securely and in a way that delivers an agile and fit for the future, security posture.

What is Zero Trust?

Traditional security models assume that everything inside of a company’s network can be trusted. With the increased sophistication of modern attacks and insider threats, this is no longer the case.

The Zero Trust approach, by default, restricts a user’s access to business resources and applications until they’ve verified exactly who they are and therefore what level of access they should have. Rather than being designed purely to protect the perimeter, Zero Trust is instead rooted in the principle of “never trust, always verify”.

Zero Trust is the central tenet of Xalient’s Security and networking solutions and services portfolio.

Zero Trust Use Cases

Benefits of Zero Trust.

  • Decreases risk and improves visibility – IT teams can use Zero Trust to understand who already has access to their network and who and what is trying to gain access.
  • Meets compliance requirements – Zero Trust mitigates the opportunities for your network to be exploited.
  • Increases agility – Zero Trust isn’t constrained by the limits set by static network constructs. Like your workforce, security is flexible and mobile, with any restrictions or blocked communications being isolated rather than company-wide.
  • Security – ensures your organisation is secure in today’s cloud-enabled world.
Zero-Trust Readiness Accelerator

Software Defined Perimeter.
Making the theoretical possible.

Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) was developed to allow access to applications on a need-to-know, zero-trust basis. An SDP brokers a connection between a user and the applications they’re trying to access, only granting that access if they meet the necessary criteria.

Fast threat detection. Even faster remediation.

Security information and event management (SIEM) is a set of advanced threat-detection technologies that combine to give your organisation a holistic view of its cyber security positioning. SIEM collects security log events from numerous hosts within your enterprise – such as your intrusion detection and endpoint detection systems – and captures the relevant data centrally. By correlating this data, SIEM immediately flags anomalies and generates alerts, enabling corrective action to be taken as soon as such threats occur. As well as this, a SIEM solution delivers centralised analysis and a full suite of management reports, giving you a holistic view of your threat landscape.

With organisations facing ever-increasing cyber threats every day, SIEM is both a critically important management tool to monitor and manage your cyber security landscape and a powerful tool that meets the growing demands for security compliance.


Fully managed, fully compliant.

Xalient works with market-leading SIEM solution vendors to offer a 24/7 fully managed and scalable SIEM service, that can be designed and deployed quickly and efficiently. Supported by experienced security engineers dedicated to threat detection, and always up to date with emerging threats in the marketplace, our service is designed to provide you and your team with time to focus on the most important task of remediation rather than detection, all the while keeping you and your organisation safe.
