Zero Trust Services

Secure digital infrastructure and transactions with a zero trust architecture

Thwart cyber threats and risks with an integrated zero trust security framework

The cybersecurity landscape has significantly expanded with evolving IT environments, workload and workforce distribution, cloud and digital adoption and consequent regulatory mandates. Although organizations have invested in layered, in-depth security point solutions, the siloed approach makes it difficult to grapple with the growing sophistication and frequency of cyberattacks.

Security leaders need to shift from the current siloed security approach to a new zero trust architecture—an integrated framework that is underpinned by governance across all five elements–identity, device, network, apps, and data.

Zero Trust Services from Kyndryl integrates multiple visibility points, automates detection and response, and performs risk-aware access decisions to ensure protection of critical applications, data, and systems and reduction of attack surface. Operating in a phased approach, Kyndryl Zero Trust helps secure what is most important based on your business needs, selects the right use cases and leverages public frameworks.

Identity and Access Management

Mitigate risks due to implicit trust. Put zero trust framework at the heart of your security and cyber resilience strategy by giving users and customers the rightful access to business-critical systems and data across your organization with Identity and Access Management Services. Apply role-based authorization and risk-based authentication (RBA) to business need. One such use case includes helping prevent fraud by dynamically applying appropriate controls tailored to the risk.

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE)

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is a new category of network security that integrates networking and security into a cloud-delivered service model. Partnering with Fortinet, Kyndryl SASE Services combine zero trust networking capabilities from SD-WANs and remote user access with security features like firewalls, cloud access security brokers (CASB), secure web gateway (SWG), and other services into a single identity-centric solution. This enables organizations to transform their network and security architecture to reduce cyber threat exposure, improve user experience and cut traditional, on-premises high infrastructure costs.

Endpoint Security

Enable securing endpoints or entry points of end-user devices such as desktops, laptops, and mobile devices from being exploited by malicious actors and campaigns. Whether on a network or in the cloud, our endpoint security services can help you perform regular check-ups, shed light into potential security gaps and blind spots and apply patches on time. Our experts can conduct with Endpoint Security Maturity Assessment to help businesses:

  • Gain visibility into endpoints and applications that are in the environment.
  • Apply patches and software installations and updates quickly to distributed endpoints.
  • Find and remediate vulnerabilities and misconfigurations at scale to reduce risks.
  • Respond to and recover from incidents by reducing mean-time-to-investigate and -remediate threats.

Micro-segmentation is an approach used to divide data center infrastructure into small zones and apply security controls in those zones as required. This allows granular control of traffic flows between every workload, allowing the administrator to protect all east-west communication. In this way, micro-segmentation helps businesses implement a zero-trust security model. Kyndryl offers customers a comprehensive solution design and approach utilizing built-in integrations with the recommended tools to implement and support their zero trust security segmentation strategy. The solution covers 4 out of 5 capabilities of the NIST Cyber Security Framework that can help:

  • Protect high value applications reducing an organization’s complexity and risk profile.
  • Enable visibility to identify traffic behaviours associated to the servers and critical applications.
  • Improve protection, detection, and response against ransomware and other advanced threats and support regulatory compliance.
Application and Workload Security

Protect mission-critical applications and workloads in the cloud while staying compliant with ever-changing security-related regulatory demands, laws, and company standards. Ensure visibility into all cloud programs, apps, files, data, and users, maintain continuous compliance, and get consistent view and control of physical machines, VMs, containers and serverless irrespective of their location.

Analytics, Automation and Orchestration

Analyze, orchestrate and automate response to insider threats, advanced threats, and hidden risks across your hybrid, multicloud environments and containerized workloads by enabling intelligent threat management. Enhance threat intelligence by integrating malware analysis to proactively protect against breaches and enable faster, more accurate response.

Zero Trust Maturity Assessment

The Kyndryl Zero Trust Maturity Assessment (ZTMA) helps customers to overcome obstacles in their zero-trust journey. The experts evaluate a set of initial use cases against industry standard zero trust principles and helps with aligning business and IT priorities with customers’ individual security risks and compliance requirements. The key steps include:

  • Identifying security gaps against Kyndryl Security Zero Trust governance model.
  • Building a zero-trust security roadmap conforming to the unique security, industry compliance and investment strategy requirements.
  • Following a use case driven approach to help strengthen zero trust capabilities across multiple security disciplines for faster zero trust model adoption.
Vulnerability Management

With Vulnerability Management Services, Kyndryl can assist in the mitigation of comprehensive cybersecurity and operational resilience risks for heterogeneous infrastructures, including physical, virtual, and cloud environments, while supporting evolving compliance and audit requirements. Organizations can better combat cyberattacks and improve cyber immunity with:

  • A holistic view of end-to-end vulnerability management lifecycle.
  • The design, implementation, and administration of the architecture of vulnerability scanning tools.
  • A risk-based approach to detect vulnerabilities and orchestrate their remediation.
  • Remediation collaboration through prioritization of critical assets over actively exploitable threats.
  • Personalised dashboards and reports to meet regulatory requirements.
