Xcitium Launches Zero Dwell – Trusted Security Advisory Community

Xcitium, a provider of endpoint protection solutions, unveiled a new program for cybersecurity professionals – the Zero Dwell (TSA) Trusted Security Advisory Community. Developed to provide a forum where security information professionals and their teams can collaborate and share expertise and best practices in real time with other professionals.

Xcitium’s ZeroDwell technology is based on zero trust architecture and should be a fundamental part of any enterprise cyber security program, but vague definitions and overuse have caused confusion and allowed for the spread of misinformation.

According to a recent Gartner report, “Security and risk management leaders are asking for investment to build zero trust security, but zero trust can be confusing to business executives. To obtain support, these leaders must be able to communicate what zero trust is, the benefits it brings, and the challenges it creates for the business.”

The report also states that “security leaders are inundated with marketing and vague language about zero trust and struggle to translate the technical reality into business benefits; too many vendors are using zero trust in terms of a huge range of products, yet this is an organizational vision that is anchored in architecture and principles and is not solvable by a technology alone; and executive backing is critical to the success of zero trust programs as they require changes in architecture, culture, and technology.”

“The threats that these experts must defend against on a daily basis are global in scope and can cripple networks, companies, and lives,” said Dr. Erdal Ozkaya, chief cybersecurity strategist and CISO of Xcitium and the program’s chair. “We believe that we are better when we work together, bringing the best minds with the brightest and most innovative ideas to the table where these ideas can be evaluated, discussed, implemented and shared with the broader community.”

Centered on approaches that leverage the zero trust architecture approach to plan industrial and enterprise infrastructure and workflows, this Zero Dwell TSA Community will bring together IT cybersecurity experts to share ideas related to cybersecurity issues and challenges, the threat landscape, and the evolving array of products, services and methodologies that can be leveraged to combat bad actors and keep networks and data secure.

Output from this community will be shared in the form of white papers, contributed articles, blogs and speaking events. The program consists of two tiers: Cyber Guardians, 12 of the brightest minds in cybersecurity from around the world that will be leading the community mission and; Cyber Defenders, incoming members meeting minimum community requirements.
