Spider-Man Chairs For Kids

With “Spider-Man: No Way Home” approaching cinemas and Christmas just around the corner, it’s time to celebrate!

And what’s more festive than spider-strength chairs for kids? Give your little one something special this Christmas – and a good quality chair never hurt anybody.

Why Spider-Man, Of All Superheroes?

Well, not only is he the most easily recognizable one but also probably the favorite of many kids. Furthermore, Marvel is known for its careful balancing of dark and bright, with Spider-Man’s motto – “With great power comes great responsibility” – embodying this approach perfectly.

It is proven that youths want something which they could relate themselves to. Spider-Man is perfect for this role. It is because Peter Parker is just an ordinary guy, who by chance, got his powers. Plus, he is very human – not over-the-top good nor evil. Because of the great responsibility factor, kids can see him as a mentor and role model.

Spider-Man is one of the most popular characters in the history of comics. Since his first appearance in 1962 up until now, the superhero created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko has inspired children across generations with his incredible strength and powers.

But what does a Spider-Man chair mean to your kid? Well, there is nothing more satisfactory than seeing your child happy and excited about their favorite superhero. Such artificial happiness will not only give you some good vibes but also strengthen the bond between you and your child. That’s the magic of Christmas, right?

Feature Spotlight: Announcing Leading Zero Trust Partnerships for XDR-Powered Autonomous Response

In response to the evolving threat landscape, organizations are moving from their legacy layered network defense to a Zero Trust security model. 85% of organizations have already defined Zero Trust initiatives but often don’t know where to start. With Zero Trust, organizations follow the “never trust, always verify” approach, which dictates that endpoints, user identities, applications, and the corporate network are no longer trusted by default. SentinelOne is committed to helping organizations succeed as they shift to a Zero Trust security model.

With the rise of credential stuffing attacks and ransomware, endpoints and identities are two of the most commonly exploited attack vectors to gain access to an organization’s data.

Attacks like these have made organizations reconsider the ‘trust by default’ approach. Insider credentials are attractive targets for attackers as they can be taken advantage of for elevated access. In contrast to attacks originating from outside of the corporate network, adversaries can leverage the implicit trust given to an identity or endpoint to move laterally within an organization’s network.

Many customers today interconnect their endpoint and identity security solutions to gain complete visibility on compromised users. This is often done through their Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) or User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) solution.

However, this results in several disadvantages:

  • Struggles with scalability
  • Requires setup and maintenance of integration
  • Limited automation opportunities for automatic remediation
  • Lack of real-time detection and response, relying on logs and events after-the-fact to reconstruct attacks
  • Lack of prevention capabilities to stop attacks from progressing, no automated response and recovery

As organizations move to a Zero Trust model, they are looking to understand how they can continuously verify the trust of all their assets and provide explicit just-in-time access. To achieve that, organizations are looking into Extended Detection and Response (XDR) as their modern security platform that can solve the data ingestion, data analytics and processing, and central response problem.

Adopting Zero Trust Model

Whereas legacy models focused on neutralizing threats originating outside an organization’s network, Zero Trust acknowledges that threats may well exist both inside and outside the network. Legacy security models trust by default the endpoints and identities within their sphere of influence; in contrast, Zero Trust follows the principle of “never trust, always verify” for all endpoints and identities.

By successfully adopting Zero Trust, organizations can perform risk-based access control and leverage the concept of least privileged access for every access decision. Organizations that successfully adopt a Zero Trust concept become more effective in protecting their assets and faster at responding to cyber threats. Ultimately, adopting Zero Trust will help organizations to reduce risk as well as Mean-time-to-Detect (MTTD) and Mean-time-to-Respond (MTTR).

SentinelOne for Zero Trust

The SentinelOne Singularity XDR extends visibility, analytics, and response capabilities across endpoint, user identity, cloud applications, and the network, enabling Singularity XDR to power the organization’s Zero Trust security model.

To achieve that, SentinelOne has partnered with leading solutions in Identity and Access Management (IAM), Cloud Application Security Broker (CASB), and Network Detection Response (NDR) to provide a best-of-breed Zero Trust security model where organizations can choose the vendors of their own choice.

“Open ecosystems are critical to a Zero Trust strategy as organizations look to use best-of-breed solutions” David Baldwin, Director of Product Management for Ecosystem, SentinelOne.

Protecting User Identity with Azure AD Integration

SentinelOne is a member of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association and is excited to announce the general availability of the SentinelOne App for Azure Active Directory. The SentinelOne Singularity XDR Platform integrates Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), a leading enterprise identity and access management solution, to provide Zero Trust capabilities for endpoints and identities. Through the integration, organizations benefit from autonomous response capabilities that help security professionals respond to cyber threats faster.

​​“Global cyberattacks attacks like Kaseya or SUNBURST are a constant reminder of the importance of modernizing legacy security architectures”, said Sue Bohn, Vice President of Program Management, Microsoft. “The integration between SentinelOne and Azure Active Directory will allow organizations to combine leading endpoint and identity solutions to embrace a Zero Trust security model.”

“Joint customers benefit from built-in integration for autonomous real-time response actions”, said Raj Rajamani, Chief Product Officer, SentinelOne. “Bringing together leading endpoint and identity solutions will go a long way towards helping customers develop and mature their Zero Trust programs”.

Through the SentinelOne App for Azure Active Directory, when an endpoint is compromised, the impacted user identity information is shared in real-time with Azure AD, allowing the organization’s Conditional Access policy to prevent access to corporate resources and services.

With SentinelOne and Microsoft, organizations can begin their Zero Trust journey by unifying endpoint security and identity management for conditional access. With seamless integration, connect SentinelOne Singularity XDR to Microsoft Azure AD to enforce identity policy and automatically respond to threats.

With this powerful integration, joint customers can:

  • Enforce MFA for user identities authenticated on a compromised endpoint
    When a user is authenticated on a compromised endpoint you can enforce MFA.
  • Block access for compromised user identities
    Block in real-time access to corporate resources and services for users authenticated on a compromised endpoint.
  • Limit access for compromised user identities
    Limit access to corporate information when the user is using a compromised endpoint.
  • Hassle-free connection between Singularity and Azure Active Directory
    No complex API work is required or manual maintenance required.

Monitor, Secure and Enforce Endpoint Policies

Today endpoints, regardless of whether they are workstations, laptops, mobile devices, or servers, often have different configurations, patch statuses, and operating systems, leading to inconsistent approaches to applying security policy. This problem is compounded by the rise of bring-your-own-endpoint (BYOD) and the loss of visibility from legacy network controls due to the rise of remote and hybrid working practices.

Adopting Zero Trust for endpoints can assist organizations in reducing this risk by providing the means to monitor, isolate, secure, control, and remove any endpoint from the network at any time. When integrated into a Zero Trust ecosystem, endpoints can provide valuable trust signals when determining whether to grant network access, including the endpoint’s identity, health, and compliance status.

SentinelOne Singularity XDR Protection combines next-gen prevention and Endpoint Detection Response (EDR) capabilities in a single platform with a single agent.

With Singularity, organizations benefit from:

  • Robust Prevention & Control
    Replace legacyAV solutions with Static AI models trained to detect threats by looking at various static attributes extracted from executables, eliminating dependencies on signatures, and offering superior detection of file-based threats.
  • Threat Detection with Storyline™
    Behavioral AI evaluates threats — like fileless attacks, lateral movement, and actively executing rootkits — in real-time, delivering high-fidelity detections without human intervention.Individual events are automatically correlated into a context-rich Storyline to reconstruct the attack from start to finish.
  • Automated Remediation
    Patented 1-click remediation automates threat resolution with fully autonomous responses that trigger protective actions in real-time. SentinelOne provides a clear picture of an endpoint’s health, management status, and the ability to automatically quarantine or remediate it to bring the device into compliance.
  • Singularity Conditional Policy
    Organizations struggle to balance between security and user productivity. When looking at security configurations, they typically treat all endpoints equally regardless if they are compromised. With Singularity Conditional Policy, organizations can change in real-time security enforcements depending on whether an endpoint is compromised.
  • Device Hardening and Control
    SentinelOne’s Device Control suite helps organizations embrace a more hardened posture for data loss prevention by restricting USB, Bluetooth, and Bluetooth Low Energy communications. Admins can restrict by endpoint class – for example, USB mass storage endpoints – which dramatically reduces the potential attack surface for insider threats and data loss.

Protect Cloud Workloads and Applications

According to Forrester, “public cloud migrations and other disruptive IT changes have often acted as a good vehicle for achieving a Zero Trust security model.”

A Zero Trust solution for cloud workloads must provide a repeatable and consistent approach to securing private, public, hybrid, and multi-cloud environments. Regardless of the public cloud environment, it’s the organization’s responsibility to monitor their cloud attack surface, which is just as vulnerable to compromise as user endpoints.

With Singularity Cloud Workload Security, organizations benefit from:

  • Runtime Protection
    Runtime protection and EDR for virtual machines (VMs) and containerized workloads. Organizations can manage and secure hybrid, private, and multi-cloud workloads from a single console with a single agent. Workload health status is available in real-time and affected workloads can automatically be brought back into compliance.
  • Automated Application Control
    Application Control preserves the immutable nature of the workload by employing a default-deny posture for any new code not present in the validated initial VM or container image. Not only does this harden the image itself, but it prevents attackers from executing arbitrary code that could be used for compromise or lateral movement.
  • Cloud Application Access Control
    Cloud application access control enables default-deny policies for access to cloud workloads and services. Cloud services are denied by default, reducing the amount of shadow IT and shadow cloud usage. Only approved endpoints will access the cloud resources and can be managed by exception by the security team.

Segment and Control Network Access

Networks have evolved due to the rise of remote work, and our perception of the network perimeter has evolved as well. Managed networks are no longer contained to a single location; they exist wherever devices, cloud workloads, and mobile devices access corporate resources.

With Singularity, organizations can better see and control their network with:

  • Attack Surface Visibility and Control
    To gain visibility into the network, SentinelOne Singularity Ranger turns endpoints into distributed network sensors that provide monitoring of the enterprise attack surface in real-time. SentinelOne agents actively fingerprint and inventory all IP-enabled endpoints on the network to identify abnormal communications and open vulnerabilities.With Ranger, risk from devices that are not secured with SentinelOne can be mitigated by either automatically deploying an agent or isolating the device from the secured endpoints. This is how Ranger can be used to effectively reduce the attack surface.
  • Zero Trust Network Access
    SentinelOne’s integrations with Zscaler and Cloudflare uses device signals from SentinelOne to inform ZTNA access decisions. Information about the endpoint, including whether it is managed and has a SentinelOne agent installed, is provided to Zscaler and Cloudflare. This information is combined with contextually relevant information from an identity provider to determine a point-in-time network access decision.
  • Microsegmentation
    SentinelOne’s integration with Guardicore provides centralized visibility of network activity, including network data generated from endpoints and cloud workloads. SentinelOne agents report metadata to Guardicore that creates detailed visibility and network topology in the Guardicore console for decision-making, forensics, and micro-segmentation policy creation. Policies can be exported from Guardicore, where SentinelOne’s native firewall controls enforce them. Guardicore can define segmentation and micro-segmentation policies and then use the SentinelOne APIs to enforce them on the agent.
  • Network Detection Response
    SentinelOne integrates with a number of NDR solutions including Vectra AI, Awake Security (Arista Networks), and Fidelis. The combination of SentinelOne’s EDR with partner NDR capabilities provides visibility, detection, and response for both managed and unmanaged endpoints. While NDR connects related network activity into a broader attack map, SentinelOne provides contextual awareness by enriching information coming from managed endpoints such as device name, last logged-in user, operating system details, and other endpoint characteristics. This provides comprehensive threat detection, rapid and effective response, endpoint containment, and forensic analysis capabilities.


SentinelOne has partnered with other leading vendors to build the first-of-its-kind Zero Trust platform. Organizations have a wide variety of available vendors that can be integrated into a unified security platform, allowing organizations to benefit from data ingestion at scale, data analytics, and centralized autonomous response capabilities.

Are Non-IsoFix Car Seats Safe?

The short answer is: Yes! But check this article from ComfyBummy for the details.

Are non-Isofix car seats safe to use? This question comes up pretty often, and we did some research to bring you the answers you are looking for.

Although we are very invested in a child’s comfort and proper sitting position, one more thing is equally important: safety.

A car crash is the most common cause of death in children between one and fourteen years old. In most cases, death or injuries happen because of a collision with another car. Injuries usually occur to the head and neck areas which are not protected by seatbelts.

Accidents can also happen relatively easily: even at a sudden stop or during turns. Again, that is one of the reasons for using an appropriate type of child restraint system that protects your child from injuries in case of a crash.

How to choose the right car seat for your child?

There are a few things to consider when purchasing a car seat for your child.

Child’s age, size, and weight.

Let’s start with infant seats which are the safest for infants up to 12 months of age (9 kg – 20 lbs). These car seats make them feel like they are still in mama’s arms, and the reclined bucket seat position keeps their head against the shell rather than flailing it around during a sudden stop. Another essential thing is special straps to hold your baby’s head and neck in case of an accident.

Britax B-Safe Gen2 Flexfit Infant Car Seat


An infant seat should stay rear-facing for as long as possible (until the height and weight limits allow it). When moving from a car seat to a belt-positioning booster, make sure it fits both your child and the belt.

Remember to move your child from a 5-point harness into a belt-positioning booster as soon as their shoulders reach the top slots of the car seat and they are mature enough to stay adequately seated during a ride without leaning forward. Usually, this happens around 4 years old or when they weigh more than 22 kg (48 pounds), typically the weight of 6-7-year-olds.

Chicco KidFit 2-in-1 Belt-Positioning Booster Car Seat


If you are thinking about getting a convertible car seat, it will stay rear-facing for longer – up to 4 years which is also the legal requirement in many countries (check your local regulations). After switching to a front-facing position, these seats can be used until the height and weight limits are reached.

Graco Extend2Fit Convertible Car Seat


Always make sure your child fits properly in a car seat and always follow the height and weight limits mentioned in the user manual. Children should be restrained with a 5-point harness or seatbelt, depending on their car seat. Inflatable seatbelts are not safe for children because they do not fit well around the hips and shoulders.

Proper position

And don’t forget about proper positioning! If you want your kid to be safe, make sure the harness is snug and lower on the thighs, near hips (no shoulders!). Some types of child restraints are not appropriate for newborns. For example, rear-facing seats should only be used in the car since they can be very dangerous when placed on any other surface (even a flat floor).

Ease of use

You also need to consider practical matters like size and ease of use. Some car seats are much easier to install than others which can be a problem, especially when you have more than one child who needs a ride.

In the end, remember to install and use a car seat correctly – do not assume that others will know how to do it properly. Ask your friends and family for help if you doubt or have problems installing or using a particular seat. Your child’s safety is only your responsibility!

When it comes to car seats, there are two types of installation: Isofix and seatbelt. Each type has its advantages and disadvantages.

The European standard Isofix is the safest way to install a car seat. You just need to push your car seat into an Isofix base that stays in your car, and you are good to go!

Let’s take a closer look at the Isofix system.

What is Isofix?

Isofix is a car seat installation system introduced by the European Union in 2004 to enable easier and safer attachment of car seats to vehicle seats.

The Isofix system uses metal bars attached to the vehicle’s floor, with special sockets on the car seat’s base that attach to these bars.

This makes it securely fastened to the car and easier to attach by the user.

Do all the cars have Isofix?

Isofix is a standard in most modern vehicles, which means that the metal bars are present in all cars that meet minimum requirements.

This also means that any car seat with an Isofix fitting can be attached to these bars. The requirement of the car seats is higher because you are adding extra forces when you connect it with 6 points harness.

You can check if your car is Isofix compatible by looking for the metal bars on the car’s floor.

There are also caps that cover them when they are not used, so you can see if someone removed one of them or these metal bars simply don’t exist in your car – which is very unlikely.

Are all Isofix bases the same?

No, they are not.

Each manufacturer has its own Isofix base with specific characteristics.

They can fit different types of car seats, have different ways for fixing them to the metal bars or even different dimensions of these bars. This means that you need to use only one brand when purchasing a new base – otherwise, your child’s car seat will not be safely attached to the car.

The Isofix bases are made up of metal bars that attach to the car’s floor and a plastic cap with holes on it.

Do you need to use a seatbelt with an Isofix base?

Yes, you should. This is a requirement from the European safety standards for car seats.

It’s called “Universal Anchor to the Car,” meaning any seat must be attached with both Isofix and seat belt to be considered safe enough.

This guarantees that the seat will not move while driving, which is very important for smaller children.

How to check if the Isofix car seat is installed correctly?

You can tell if your child’s car seat is correctly attached by looking at two white lines painted next to each other on top of one of the metal bars. These lines should be horizontally level and parallel to each other.

You can also check if the seat is appropriately fixed by pulling on it with all your strength and checking if it moves more than 15 cm (6 inches) in any direction.

Also, once you’ve found an Isofix base that fits your car seat, make sure to attach it with the car seat every time you use the vehicle.

Isofix or car belt – which is safer?

First of all, the difference between Isofix and seat belt installation is that an Isofix car seat has two metal bars underneath it that are firmly attached to the back seat. Those bars connect with a click when you push the child’s seat in place. So there’s not much room for mistakes when installing the seat securely in your car.

You can install the Isofix car seat with a seat belt too. But in this case, you have to pull the shoulder part of the seat belt very tightly over the child’s car seat, then push it down firmly on one side and do that for both sides. When your car has 3-point belts in the back, that means you have to pull the belt very tightly over the seat and across the child’s shoulder.

If you didn’t attach an Isofix car seat correctly, it could easily move during a crash or sudden braking.

When an accident happens, things can change very quickly. Your child needs the best protection you can give them!

That’s why it’s crucial to choose the right kind of safety gear for your little traveler.

This is why we recommend choosing a seat with an Isofix base, also when it’s more expensive. That way, you install the seat correctly every time.

To be extra safe, you can use Isofix car seats with an Isofix base for your youngest kids or those who are still rear-facing.

When it comes to the Isofix vs. Belt installation – it’s generally safer to use an Isofix seat than a belt – but that doesn’t mean that belts should not be used. Kids who are too small for an Isofix seat can be seated with a 3-point belt.

Is Isofix car seat worth it?

Yes! Isofix car seats are worth it for several reasons.

First of all, most of them are very lightweight and easy to carry around. If you travel a lot with your baby – that’s something you’ll appreciate.

Secondly, some models have a very slim profile after you fasten them to the metal bars. That way, they don’t take much space in your car – especially if you have a small vehicle or need more storage room.

Thirdly, many of these seats come with excellent safety features that protect kids in an accident. But make sure to always check if the car seat you choose comes with comfortable straps and is easy for your child to use.

When is your child ready to switch from infant seat to children seat?

There is no universal answer to this question since it depends on several different factors. But don’t worry – we have got you covered!

First things first: safety ratings and instructions should be the primary source for proper guidance. If a car seat is not recommended by experts and fellow parents or doesn’t include proper information regarding age, height, and weight requirements, it simply means it is not designed for your child.

And remember: We are all different, and there might be children who exceed height, weight, or age recommendations even though they feel uncomfortable in a regular forward-facing car seat. In the end, only you can decide if it’s safe to let them stay in a particular type of restraint until they turn four or five years old.

The ‘Groove’ Ransomware Gang Was a Hoax

A number of publications in September warned about the emergence of “Groove,” a new ransomware group that called on competing extortion gangs to unite in attacking U.S. government interests online. It now appears that Groove was all a big hoax designed to toy with security firms and journalists.

“An appeal to business brothers!” reads the Oct. 22 post from Groove calling for attacks on the United States government sector.

Groove was first announced Aug. 22 on RAMP, a new and fairly exclusive Russian-language darknet cybercrime forum.

“GROOVE is first and foremost an aggressive financially motivated criminal organization dealing in industrial espionage for about two years,” wrote RAMP’s administrator “Orange” in a post asking forum members to compete in a contest for designing a website for the new group. “Let’s make it clear that we don’t do anything without a reason, so at the end of the day, it’s us who will benefit most from this contest.”

According to a report published by McAfee, Orange launched RAMP to appeal to ransomware-related threat actors who were were ousted from major cybercrime forums for being too toxic, or to cybercriminals who complained of being short-changed or stiffed altogether by different ransomware affiliate programs.

The report said RAMP was the product of a dispute between members of the Babuk ransomware gang, and that its members likely had connections to another ransomware group called BlackMatter.

“[McAfee] believes, with high confidence, that the Groove gang is a former affiliate or subgroup of the Babuk gang, who are willing to collaborate with other parties, as long as there is financial gain for them,” the report said. “Thus, an affiliation with the BlackMatter gang is likely.”

In the first week of September, Groove posted on its darknet blog nearly 500,000 login credentials for customers of Fortinet VPN products, usernames and passwords that could be used to remotely connect to vulnerable systems. Fortinet said the credentials were collected from systems that hadn’t yet implemented a patch issued in May 2019.

Some security experts said the post of the Fortinet VPN usernames and passwords was aimed at drawing new affiliates to Groove. But it seems more likely the credentials were posted to garner the attention of security researchers and journalists.

Sometime in the last week, Groove’s darknet blog disappeared. In a post on the Russian cybercrime forum XSS, an established cybercrook using the handle “Boriselcin” explained that Groove was little more than a pet project to screw with the media and security industry.

“For those who don’t understand what’s going on: I set up a fake Groove Gang and named myself a gang,” Boriselcin wrote. The rest of the post reads:

“They ate it up, I dumped 500k old Fortinet [access credentials] that no one needed and they ate it up. I say that I am going to target the U.S. government sector and they eat it up. Few journalists realized that this was all a show, a fake, and a scam! And my respect goes out to those who figured it out. I don’t even know what to do now with this blog with a ton of traffic. Maybe sell it? Now I just need to start writing [the article], but I can’t start writing it without checking everything.”

A review of Boriselcin’s recent postings on XSS indicate he has been planning this scheme for several months. On Sept. 13, Boriselcin posted that “several topics are ripening,” and that he intended to publish an article about duping the media and security firms.

“Manipulation of large information security companies and the media through a ransom blog,” he wrote. “It’s so funny to read Twitter and the news these days 🙂 But the result is great so far. Triggering the directors of information security companies. We fuck the supply chain of the information security office.”

Throughout its short existence, Groove listed only a handful of victims on its darknet victim shaming blog, leading some to conclude the group wasn’t much of a threat.

“I wouldn’t take this call too seriously,” tweeted The Record’s Catalin Cimpanu in response to tweets about Groove’s rallying cry to attack U.S. government interests. “Groove are low-tier actors with few skills.”

Normally, when a cybercriminal forum or enterprise turns out to be fake or a scam, we learn the whole thing was a sting operation by federal investigators from the United States and/or other countries. Perhaps the main reason we don’t see more scams like Boricelcin’s is because there’s not really any money in it.

But that’s not to say his cynical ploy fails to serve a larger purpose. Over the past few years, we’ve seen multiple ransomware gangs reinvent themselves and rebrand to evade prosecution or economic sanctions. From that vantage point, anything which sows confusion and diverts the media and security industry’s time and attention away from real threats is a net plus for the cybercriminal community.

Tom Hoffman, senior vice president of intelligence at Flashpoint, said mocking Western media outlets and reporters is a constant fixture of the conversation on top-tier cybercrime forums. ”

“It is clear the criminal actors read all the press releases and Twitter claims about them,” Hoffman said. “We know some of them just want to inflict pain on the West, so this type of trolling is likely to continue. With the high level of attention this one got, I would assume we will see some other copycats pretty soon.”

Cyber intelligence firm Intel471 said while it’s possible that a single actor concocted Groove as a way to troll security researchers and the media, they believe it’s more likely that the actor’s attempt to create their own ransomware group didn’t work out as they had planned.

“It’s also important to remember that the true identity and nature of any Ransomware-as-a-Service gang is not always clear and the membership makeup or affiliates of these gangs can be fluid,” Intel 471 wrote. “Despite that and based on our research from multiple sources, which includes but isn’t limited to observations of shared infrastructure and victimology, we believe “boriselcin” operated the Groove blog and the RAMP forum. This individual is a well-known member of the Russian-language cybercrime community with ties to a number of ransomware gangs and in August offered $1000 for someone to design a ransomware victim shaming blog for Groove. We are skeptical of the claims raised by the actor that Groove was an elaborate hoax from the beginning although we wouldn’t be surprised to see further claims by the actor claiming this in future.”

Moving to a Zero Trust Security Model

Recent cyberattacks like those on Colonial Pipeline and Kaseya, along with trends like the shift towards remote work have made many organizations realize the need to modernize their security model.

Historically, organizations utilized a perimeter-based security model as it helped them defend against cyber threats outside their corporate network. Layered network defenses have been the traditional approach to security for decades. Network-centric methods relied heavily on physical sensors—like firewalls, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), and Intrusion Detection System (IDS)—to control and secure north-south traffic. Once inside the corporate network, trust was implicit and given to everyone.

This security model introduced significant blindspots as organizations started to utilize cloud solutions, and employees, contractors, and partners were required to connect to corporate resources outside the corporate network. Today, almost all enterprises use cloud services. In the U.S. alone, organizations expect that 60% of their workforce will be mobile workers, and 87% of businesses depend on the employee’s ability to access business information on their mobile devices.

In the past, most resources and services that store corporate data were protected behind the corporate network. This has changed with the adoption of cloud applications like Office 365, Slack, or Dropbox and the mobile workforce working virtually from anywhere. Today, many resources and services that were unthinkable to be accessible outside the corporate network are hosted in the cloud and outside the security boundary that a perimeter-based security model can protect.

As organizations move from a legacy perimeter-based security to a Zero Trust security model, they are looking for strategic partners to help them in their journey.

According to Neil Binnie, Head of Information Security and Compliance at Morgan Sindall Group PLC:

“Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, we had hundreds of mobile staff working from almost three hundred work locations as well as home offices and coffee shops. So we have always had to adopt a defense in depth approach with multiple virtual perimeters. Moving to the Zero Trust security model is a natural progression of that approach.”

Binnie says that organizations are looking to take advantage of AI-powered autonomous Extended Detection Response (XDR) platforms that help them make decisions based on an asset’s behavior.

“We review the trust relationship on a dynamic basis based on behaviors of the user identity and endpoint. The trust level can increase if the user passes a Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) challenge, or the trust can decrease If the endpoint is infected with malware.” and “With Singularity Conditional Policy, we can increase the security controls for compromised assets automatically.”

As organizations are mapping out their transaction flow and protect surface, they are looking for ways to make easy sense of their telemetry data. “With Singularity Ranger, we were able to identify endpoints on our corporate network that may be part of the legitimate transaction but were previously not as well managed or monitored”, Binnie noted. “We leveraged SentinelOne Deep Visibility to help identify our transaction flows and protect surface.”

According to Binnie, moving to Zero Trust is a multi-year journey for many organizations, and it’s essential to identify a strategic partner that helps the organization. “We started our journey to move to a Zero Trust security model, and for that, SentinelOne is our strategic partner.”

Zero Trust Security Model Explained

With a Zero Trust security model, trust is no longer granted by default to anyone regardless of whether they are inside or outside the corporate network. Instead, Zero Trust follows the principle of “never trust, always verify”. The user identity and endpoint need to prove they are not compromised, and only then will they receive access to corporate resources and services.

Whereas legacy perimeter-based security models are focused on defending against threats coming from outside the network, Zero Trust acknowledges that threats may well exist both inside and outside the network. By successfully adopting Zero Trust, organizations can perform risk-based access control and leverage the concept of least privileged access for every access decision. That is why many organizations are looking to move from their legacy perimeter into a Zero Trust security model.

In a recent study, 42% of organizations confirmed that they plan to adopt a Zero Trust strategy. Additionally, 60% of North American organizations (and 40% globally) are currently working on  Zero Trust projects. The recent Executive Order (EO) on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity Zero Trust has become even further focused as the U.S. government looks to accelerate its Zero Trust adoption.

With Zero Trust, organizations become able to continuously monitor and manage the hygiene, risk, and hardening of their entire estate across endpoints, cloud workloads, user identity, and networks. To achieve that, organizations are looking for a security and data analytics platform like an Extended Detection Response (XDR) platform that can perform data ingest at scale, data analytics, and centralized incident response and access management.

Building a Zero Trust Security Model

While the end-state of a Zero Trust security model sounds very promising, the challenge that many organizations face is defining a blueprint on how they can begin their Zero Trust journey and successfully migrate from their legacy perimeter-based model to a Zero Trust security model.

It’s important to acknowledge that moving to a Zero Trust security model will take time and won’t happen overnight. Therefore, it is essential to understand where you are starting from and what the long-term objectives are.

To do so, you can utilize the Zero Trust maturity level matrix:

As organizations start their Zero Trust journey, this simple 5-step methodology can be helpful:

  1. Define your protect surface: This could be user information, personal identifiers, financial records, business information, assets, or anything else.
  2. Map transaction flows: This is tracking the way people are trafficked through a network.
  3. Architect the Environment: ZTN designs are unique per organization because your protected surface determines them.
  4. Outline the Zero Trust policies: Determine the Zero Trust policies by answering who, what, when, where, why, and how to access corporate resources and services.
  5. Monitor and Maintain the Environment: Gather telemetry, leverage autonomous solutions to perform analytics, detect anomalies and automatically respond based on the defined Zero Trust policies.

Next Steps

Everything is assumed to be breached in a Zero Trust environment, and endpoints and user identities must prove otherwise. An effective Zero Trust framework integrates best-of-breed solutions and existing infrastructure to fill security gaps without a forklift upgrade of the security stack. SentinelOne’s approach to Zero Trust provides the means for security teams to continuously monitor and manage the hygiene, risk, and hardening of their entire estate as part of a Zero Trust strategy.
