Home » Solutions » Network Security Platform » Zero Trust Security Framework Foundation

Zero trust is a security principle which emphasizes that security networks should “always verify, never trust” any device, including those already within the network perimeter. As a result, a zero trust security framework demands that any device accessing network resources provide authentication through micro-segmented security checkpoints to minimize user error and provide a more secure network interaction. 

  • Secure your deployments with device geofencing & GPS tracking
  • Get strong integrity using hardware & software encryption via TPM
  • Protect users & data with multi-factor authentication & fine-grain authorization

Why choose zero trust?

Traditional “castle and moat” security models don’t address either the user error involved in modern cyberattacks or the expansion of the network perimeter due to the rise of remote work. Instead, a zero trust security framework focuses on the devices themselves and disregards the perimeter as the primary judge of a device’s trustworthiness.

  • Protect your entire enterprise, including remote workers
  • Get core-to-edge data protection & stay safe from attacks
  • Set up new networks with hardened security, even before Day 0

The use of zero trust in remote networks also frees up the back and forth traffic that normally has to be routed through your already overworked data center. This lightens the load on network engineers and creates a more user-friendly experience for your staff.

                            Tested and verified to work with leading SAML providers, Nodegrid zero trust security framework works with you to create a platform that integrates with SSE vendors of your choice. Customize your security by integrating with companies like Duo, Okta, Ping Identity, Microsoft ADFS, and others.


                            Never trust, always verify

                            A Zero Trust Security Framework pulls from a robust toolbox of features designed to provide you with the latest in around-the-clock security.



                            Create micro segments to designate your network perimeters and strengthen your security layer.


                            Multi-factor authentication

                            Require multi-factor authentication (MFA) that ensures only the right users & devices gain access.


                            Least-privilege access

                            Let users access the network resources they need, without exposing them to areas outside their competency or duty.
