Zero Trust is a security model that assumes that all devices, users, and applications are threats until proven otherwise. However, the way most companies execute this idea is incomplete. Specifically, most security practitioners forget that device compliance is a crucial element of Zero Trust. Just because you recognize a device, doesn’t mean it’s in a secure state. Kolide solves this issue by making device compliance part of the authentication process.
Kolide’s unique approach works with Okta to ensure that only compliant devices can access company apps. If a device isn’t compliant, users can’t log in until they fix the problem. This approach doesn’t create more work for IT, as Kolide provides instructions so users can get unblocked on their own. Kolide works across Mac, Windows, and Linux devices, with mobile support coming soon.
