The corporate network, once a great enabler of business productivity, is rapidly becoming an obstacle. This is leaving CIOs with no choice but to make a strategic withdrawal away from defending global and integrated corporate networks, towards more secure-able and relevant perimeters. There is no other way forward.
This is the first in a series of blog posts examining a cloud-based enterprise. In this post we’ll introduce how a Secure Enclave can help enterprises migrate to a pure cloud-based operational model.

A New Paper Suggests it’s Time to Think Differently about Segmentation
The perimeter protecting the network, once considered impregnable, has been degraded by advanced threats and an explosion in the number of connected devices (and apps running on them) and a new generation of predatory malware attacks.
Since the dawn of the networking era, enterprises built open (flat) networks to offer every user access to (almost) every application. Many of these networks are global, spanning business units and national boundaries with unprecedented connectivity. Amazing. Powerful. Everything and everyone is accessible.
Second Panel on Ukraine Held at GWU
Last fall we discussed how digital societies are more vulnerable to cyber mayhem and cited the recent Future in Review panel on Ukraine’s cyber war. Last week a follow-on panel was held at George Washington University: The U.S.-Ukraine Cybersecurity Partnership.
Opening remarks from Frank Cilluffo, Director of the Center for Cyber and Homeland Security, and Dr. Leo M. Chalupa, Vice President for Research at George Washington University, highlighted that whatever threats Ukraine faces will eventually be seen globally.
Due to increased cyberattacks on the US government supply chain DHS has now mandated protecting Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) using NIST 800-171. While at first this may seem like a daunting task with a bit of planning implementing NIST 800-171 is very manageable.
Over the last few years there has been significant security improvements in public clouds. For example, AWS now offers transparent data encryption, key management and secure compute features. Unfortunately, even with the advances in public cloud computing, organizations like financial institutions have been unable to leverage these services because many analysts work in secure facilities that have no Internet access.
PrecisionAccess can be a force multiplier for your security team by future proofing your existing infrastructure against advanced attacks, including credential theft, predatory malware and man-in-the-middle. Software Defined Perimeter and Trust Assessment technology combine to obfuscate servers until user and device trust is established and access is granted to a single application or groups of applications.
