Deloitte Launches Zero Trust Access, Managed Security Service

To help organizations adopt zero trust more quickly and efficiently, Deloitte is launching a managed service – Zero Trust Access— that offers a cloud-native approach to securing communications among users, on any device, and enterprise applications, wherever they may reside.

The zero-trust concept commits to removing implicit trust within an information technology (IT) ecosystem and replacing it with a risk-based approach to accessing organizational resources across identities, workloads, data, networks and devices.

The trend is gaining momentum, given legacy approaches to security, architecture are no longer suitable to secure the ubiquitous nature of the modern enterprise.

Part of Deloitte’s expanded Zero Trust Access facilitates zero-trust adoption and the evolving needs of organizations in protecting their applications, infrastructure, and data. Following the integration of recently acquired talent and technology into existing Deloitte services, the Zero Trust Access managed service connects users to applications through a frictionless cloud-native solution that is inherently scalable, resilient, agile and secure.

Further, the managed service is available standalone, integrated with other Deloitte offerings or as part of a broader solution leveraging technologies from Deloitte’s alliances’ ecosystem.

“As perimeter-based approaches are no longer suitable to secure the modern enterprise, many organizations are working to enhance protection for their IT ecosystems via zero trust,” said Andrew Rafla, Deloitte Risk & Financial Advisory’s zero-trust offering leader and principal, Deloitte & Touche LLP. “Zero Trust Access was built as a turnkey managed service helping ourselves and our clients accelerate adoption of this transformative security framework. Our goal was to create a cost-effective solution that can be delivered standalone or complementary to a broader ecosystem and ultimately help decrease the burden on IT and security teams who likely need to manage multiple heterogeneous solutions to achieve similar outcomes.”
