Why Is Zero Trust Adoption So Important Today?
The complexity of today’s business structures and the rise of digital transformation drive organizations to modernize their security approach. The zero trust approach redefines security by making denied access the default response.
Verify each request for access or execution as though it originates from an open network.
Apply “least privilege” user access control based on the minimum permissions required to carry out a task.
Reduce risk by inspecting and monitoring every activity. Use analytics to get visibility and drive threat detection.
How to Build a Zero Trust Architecture
Understanding the Zero Trust Concept
Zero trust is about removing implicit trust by creating policy-based controls that limit user access without impacting employee productivity. By adopting the “assume breach” approach, continuous monitoring, adaptive risk policies, and advanced user authentication become consistent practices that provide a more suited security infrastructure for today’s workforce.
Comprehensive Security Is Key
Organizations need an inclusive platform that can handle a unified security architecture to fully enable zero trust security and strengthen threat defense. A strong identity framework, automated application and device control, and user access policy management are the key elements of comprehensive security.
