Zero Trust usage is growing rapidly and has become the new standard in cybersecurity. In this blog entry we explain what exactly is Zero Trust, why it is important and how your business can deploy Zero Trust.
What is Zero Trust?
Zero Trust is based on the principle of never trust, always verify. This means every request from every user, whether inside or outside your perimeter, must be authenticated, authorized and encrypted in real time. Zero Trust changes the concept of perimeter from location based to identity and access based.
While the concept of Zero Trust cybersecurity has been around for several years, adoption has only recently taken off as remote work and cloud computing have become common. Business leaders across all industries and all sizes of organizations are adopting Zero Trust.
Why is Zero Trust important?
There are numerous reasons to deploy a Zero Trust cybersecurity architecture. Zero Trust helps protect against both internal and external threats, provides visibility to all data access activities, limits data exfiltration, gives the right protections and access controls for cloud computing, ensures data privacy, complies with the strictest regulatory laws and enables security for remote and hybrid workforces.
When implemented correctly, Zero Trust can simplify IT operations, lower costs, decrease the number of cybersecurity tools necessary and decrease dependence on cybersecurity staffing.
