Supporting NIS2 Alignment with Xage: Zero Trust and Granular Access Control

By May 28, 2024 No Comments

The EU’s Network and Information Security Directive (NIS2) is legislation aimed at getting organizations to strengthen their cybersecurity resilience. NIS2 requires operators of essential services (OES) and key digital service providers to implement robust cybersecurity measures, including risk management, incident reporting, and collaboration with authorities. Similarly, the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre’s Cyber Assessment Framework (NCSC CAF) provides guidance for organizations to enhance their cybersecurity posture through governance, technical security measures, and incident response.

Xage offers comprehensive solutions that can help organizations align with NIS2 and NCSC CAF, in particular around implementing zero trust principles and enabling granular access control for both users and devices, across remote and local access.

Supporting NIS2 Compliance with Xage

Key Ways Xage Helps Organizations Align with NIS2 and NCSC CAF:

  1. Zero Trust Architecture: Xage’s distributed architecture applies zero trust principles, highlighted in NIS2 Section 89, ensuring that every user and device is verified before access is granted.
  2. Granular Access Control: Implementing least-privilege policies, Xage provides identity, role, and context-based access control that meets NIS2 Section 85 requirements and aligns with NCSC CAF Objective B (Protecting Against Cyber Attack).
  3. Immutable Audit Trails: With tamper-proof logs, organizations can monitor compliance and investigate incidents swiftly, aligning with NIS2’s incident reporting obligations and NCSC CAF Principles C1 (Security Monitoring) and C2 (Proactive Security Event Discovery).
  4. Interoperability: Seamless integration with existing infrastructure ensures enhanced cybersecurity resilience and compliance.
