Zero-Trust Assessments

Let Symmetry Systems Help You Enforce Data Security

More and more, organizations are turning toward “Zero Trust” as a way to secure their organizations. They implement “Zero-Trust technologies”, build “Zero-Trust Architectures”, and go to bed at night believing their data has been secured. But without performing a deep assessment on the data itself, how do they know?

Zero-Trust Data Assessments from Symmetry Systems help organizations develop an accurate understanding of their data—from types of data and sensitivity of data objects, their locations, who and what is entitled to access the data, how it is secured, and in what manner it has been accessed. Only with deep insights into their data security posture can organizations properly follow the Zero-Trust philosophy to protect their users, their data, and their ability to grow their businesses securely.

What are Zero-Trust Data Assessments?

Work closely with our data security experts to conduct a Zero-Trust Data Assessment of your cloud and hybrid data operations. You’ll understand the data security posture of each data object across your enterprise.

The Symmetry Data Security team will use our DataGuard DSPM platform to perform an agentless scan against your target cloud data stores, stores to unearth challenges, misconfigurations, and violations.

With Zero Trust Data Assessments, our customers are armed with clear and immediate insights into data access, user permissions, and operations taken against data. Security teams use Assessment results to close entry points that otherwise might have been wide open, reducing the risk of data breaches and other unintended data access.

See Violations

Receive immediate visual insights and evidence of violations across your hybrid cloud data stores.

Use Evidence

Leverage artifacts to answer critical data security posture questions and outline a successful security strategy.

Pursue Maturity

Analysts will recommend actions to fortify your data security posture to ensure the Zero-Trust philosophy can be applied across all your data stores.

Beyond Networks and Applications

Zero-Trust Data Assessment provides critical insights at the data-object level, not simply the environment it’s hosted in.

Analyze Data Asset Inventories

  • Detect the presence of sensitive and confidential data
  • Identify dormant data that may no longer be required

Gain Visibility Into Data Risks

  • Admin accounts and break glass accounts that unnecessarily increase risk
  • Gaps in micro-segmentation policies that create vulnerabilities
  • Dormant accounts with high levels of privilege
  • Derived permissions, secondary user permissions, or toxic permission combinations
  • Data operations execution after remediation

Achieve Granular Zero Trust at the Data-Object Level

  • Identify and reduce overprivileged users
  • Excessive SRE or top-level admin access rights with tighter control
  • Cross-account or cross-cloud operations against data

Minimize Supply Chain Risk

  • Ensure that only necessary access permissions have been granted to third-parties, like vendors, partners, and contractors
  • Improperly offboarded contractors, vendors, and third-parties so that organizations can ensure permissions have been completely removed and cyber risk exposure has been reduced

Zero-Trust Data Assessments for Compliance Requirements

Compliance standards, and many audit organizations, require enterprises to conduct security assessments against industry-best practice frameworks. Symmetry Systems uses our industry-leading DataGuard DSPM to conduct Zero-Trust security assessments on your behalf, which align to the five NIST core functions, to help you meet their requirements.
