The proliferation of cloud computing, mobile device use, and the Internet of Things has removed traditional network boundaries. Hardened network perimeters alone are no longer effective for providing security in a world of increasingly sophisticated and evolving threats. Zero Trust is a design approach to architecting an information technology environment in such a way that it reduces an organization’s risk exposure in a “perimeter-less” internet connected world. A zero trust architecture treats all users as potential threats and prevents access to data and resources until the users can be properly authenticated and their access authorized.
The concept of zero trust has been around for more than a decade, but technology to support it is now making it more popular. A zero trust architecture leans heavily on components and capabilities for identity management, asset management, application authentication, network segmentation, and threat intelligence. Architecting for zero trust effectively will enhance cybersecurity without sacrificing the user experience.
