Zero Trust, Simplified
The right Zero Trust solution can provide your organization with flexibility and efficiency while managing risks.
What is Zero Trust?
Zero trust security models assume that an attacker is present in the environment and that an enterprise-owned environment is no different—or no more trustworthy—than any nonenterprise-owned environment. In this new paradigm, an enterprise must assume no implicit trust and continually analyze and evaluate the risks to its assets and business functions and then enact protections to mitigate these risks. In zero trust, these protections usually involve minimizing access to resources (such as data and compute resources and applications/services) to only those subjects and assets identified as needing access as well as continually authenticating and authorizing the identity and security posture of each access request. – NIST Special Publication 800-207
What is Missing Without Zero Trust?
Without Zero Trust
- Lack of knowledge about what is in your network
- Security suffers due to difficulty of implementation
- Lower reaches of your network lack control
- Rely on getting alerts and acting in time to avoid a major attack
- Higher risk of losing customers’ trust
With CryptoniteNXT’s Zero Trust
- Visibility into the dark corners of your network
- Tools to manage inventory and policy below your firewall
- Identity and least-privilege access control
- Network is prepared in advance for attacks
- Follows network security best practices
What does Zero Trust actually mean for an organization, and why is this significant?
“CryptoniteNXT uniquely prevents adversaries from exfiltrating actionable information from networks. The other key capability is their fine-grained micro-segmentation which stops east-west traffic that has enabled the spread of ransomware.”
Principal at Gula Tech Adventures
“We selected CryptoniteNXT to protect our enterprise network, as it prevents reconnaissance and the lateral movement of any attacks within the enterprise network. This solution closes a large gap in the current suite of cyber security tools that are currently available in the market.”
SENIOR DIRECTOR, INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY
“CryptoniteNXT’s moving target cyber defense keeps attackers out in the early stages of a cyber attack, disrupting their ability to perform reconnaissance and enumeration against their target which is critical to weapon/malware/exploit delivery. This provides defenders the advantage of time and intelligence collection against the adversary to adjust their defenses against adversary TTPs (tactics, techniques and procedures).”
ROBERT HUBER, CHIEF STRATEGY OFFICER
“…CryptoniteNXT successfully prevented the network from being enumerated and traced. Standard scanning and spoofing tools provided no actionable intelligence about the protected network.”
Network Security Research & Development
“CryptoniteNXT provides a defense-in-depth security layer to address the ever-increasing ransomware threat. The integration with Palo Alto provides seamless multifactor network authentication, bypassing any need for captive portal, even for Mac users.”
SVP, Technical Operations
Credit Card Processing Company
“Our company maintains sensitive information for our clients that is critical to their success. We selected CryptoniteNXT to protect our clients intellectual property and our reputation. CryptoniteNXT is an integral component of our cyber security strategy stopping the bad guys from uncovering weaknesses in our network and using them to steal proprietary assets from our customers and our company. ”
CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER
Public Affairs Company
“With this device implemented and configured correctly, identification and enumeration of hosts becomes an improbable attack vector.”

How Does an Organization Deploy Zero Trust?
How Do I Get Started?
Have the Agility to Stay Out of the Way
A security posture that supports change decreases time to market for your organization’s products and services.
Reduced IT support and longer system lifespan for your IP-enabled devices and IT investments improves your organization’s bottom line.
Be Prepared for Continuity
Have the confidence to quarantine and mitigate attacks while keeping your business running.
