- Threat intelligence via Kudzu Detection and Response features
Kudzu Zero-Trust Deployment Architecture
Kudzu Zero-Trust can be deployed as an agent-less or agent mode system.
Agent-less mode consists of a Kudzu Zero-Trust gateway where access is provisioned and enforced
Agent mode installs a application security fabric on-premise or in the cloud
Kudzu Zero-Trust Benefits
- End-to-End encryption and security by protecting server/application
- User/device encrypted communication and messaging
- Only authorized users and devices have access to Network, cloud and data
- Easy to Deploy
- Organizations can implement zero-trust security and threat intelligence for on-premise and/or cloud systems
- Gradual on-boarding of users, devices and systems without disrupting access to non-protected applications and servers
- Security and encryption anytime, anywhere
- Access anytime, anywhere for a always connected mobile workforce
- Mobile App and Admin Portal to enforce the anytime/anywhere access policies
- Advanced analytics and machine learning for threat detection , response and user/device behavior analysis
Why Zero-Trust Security ?
Corporate executives are feeling the pressure to protect enterprise systems and data. Data privacy and end-to-end encryption have become prevalent industry and global conversations.
Investors and “data subjects” – customers and consumers – are insisting on better data and infrastructure security. Security issues get even more perplexed when some data and applications are on-premise and some are in the cloud, and everyone from employees to contractors and partners are accessing those applications utilizing a variety of contrivances from multiple locations.
Concurrently, things like GDPR and various industry regulations are ramping up the requests to secure consequential data, and zero-trust can demonstrate compliance with these regulations.
A zero-trust framework utilizes a number of security technologies to increment the granularity of access to sensitive data and systems.
Examples include identity and access management (IAM); role-predicated access control (RBAC); network access control (NAC), multi-factor authentication (MFA), encryption, policy enforcement engines, policy orchestration, logging, analytics, and scoring and file system sanctions.
Micro-Segmentation as a practice is the key foundation to security frameworks like Zero-Trust, which is a notion that bulwarking the perimeter alone is no longer an efficacious strategy.
Zero-Trust Security implements methods to localize and isolate threats through techniques like micro-segmentation, and deep visibility to give organizations and IT teams a more organized approach inhibiting the impact of any breach.
The more IT and business teams can accept this mentality, the better they can understand the benefits of incipient approaches to micro-segmentation
Our hope is that users will realize that firewalls are great for their intended purport: Securing the perimeter. But they incline to lose efficacy when deployed across data centers and clouds for segmentation.
Equivalently consequential, technology standards and protocols are available to fortify the zero-trust approach. The Cloud Security Coalition (CSA) has developed a security framework called a software-defined perimeter (SDP) that has been utilized in some zero trust implementations.
The Cyber World Engineering Task Force (IETF) made its contribution to zero trust security models by sanctioning the Host Identity Protocol (HIP), which represents an incipient security networking layer within the OSI stack.
ransomware... you should be afraid
Schools shutting down. Hospitals turning patients away. City regimes paralyzed. Businesses racking up nine-figure losses.
Ransomware has grown to one of the most immensely colossal cybersecurity threats facing organizations.

- compliance & regulation ready
- Identify key assets and biggest risks as a business
- do not expect to achieve the goal in one step
- build for re-usability
- incorporate existing security
- monitoring and orchestration enabled
- Use only inherent secure protocols
- Security Architecture for mobile, cloud and iot
- Base access control on multiple trust attributes
- not just “user”
- Endure data is secure by default
- Use trust enabled attributes from outside of your center of focus control
- (ie outside your organization)
- PCI is not enough
Zero-Trust is a state of mind
- Zero-trust architecture state of mind

- People, process & Technology
Why Secure Accces Service Edge (SASE)
SASE consists of a customized network fabric optimization where it makes the most sense for the user, device and application – at geographically dispersed defined architecture.
To deliver optimum network experience everywhere you should avoid the unpredictability of the Internet core. In the requirements for SASE, Gartner recommends that this backbone should not be based on AWS or Azure. Their PoP density is insufficient. It is not sufficient to offer a SASE service built solely on a hyper-scale.
The cloud-based SASE systems enable updates for new features and functionality without the need for new deployments of appliances (physical or virtual) and software versions on the customer side. This has an immediate effect on the ease of management. Automation for Security Services protection is key here.
Presently the system and security organization can happen while never contacting the endeavor arrange. This permits undertakings to receive new capacities rapidly. When the tight coupling between the highlights and the client apparatus is evacuated, this expands the readiness and effortlessness for the organization of system and security administrations.
With a SASE stage, when we make an item, for example, an arrangement in the systems administration area, it is then accessible in different spaces also. So any strategies allocated to clients are attached to that client, paying little mind to the system area.
This fundamentally expels the multifaceted nature of overseeing both; system and security approaches over various areas, clients and sorts of gadgets. Remarkably, the entirety of this should be possible from one stage.
Likewise, when we inspect the security arrangement, many purchase singular apparatuses that attention just on one employment. To investigate, you have to accumulate data, for example, the logs from every gadget.
This is the thing that a SIEM is valuable for yet it must be utilized in certain associations as it’s asset overwhelming. For the ones who don’t have plentiful assets, the procedure is backbreaking and there will be bogus positives.
What’s more, SASE empowers simpler investigating since all the information is in one basic store. You never again have standardized information from various machines/arrangement and afterward import the information into a database for a typical view.
