Zero-Trust Security

Why Is Zero-Trust Adoption So Important Today?

The concept of zero-trust is not new; it’s been around for a decade. But the complexity of today’s business structures and the rise of digital transformation are inspiring organizations to take a different security approach: creating policy-based controls to enable secure access no matter how diverse or disruptive the current landscape is.
