Industries and sectors across the globe are capitalizing on the ability to Work From Anywhere (WFA) — and it comes with logistical and security challenges. Zero Trust is a strategic approach to cybersecurity in response to the increasing prevalence of working remotely. Many enterprises operate today with a patchwork of security solutions and tools with poor integration. With digital transformation accelerating in the form of a growing hybrid workforce, continued migration to the cloud, and the evolution of security operations, taking a Zero Trust approach has never been more critical.
The traditional security model of establishing network perimeters is no longer effective as a standalone. Zero Trust operates on the premise that every machine, user, and server is untrustworthy until proven otherwise — and offers higher overall levels of security for user data and intellectual property and reduced security complexity and operational overhead.
Zero Trust security model:
- Verifies and authorizes every connection.
- Works to ensure network trust and thwart malicious attacks.
- Provides employees and partners secure application access.
- Ensures the interaction meets the conditional requirements of the organization’s security policies.
- Authenticates and authorizes every device, network flow, and connection based on dynamic policies, using context from several data sources.
- Reduces complexity and saves on IT resources.
- And more.

Businesses today need Zero Trust to protect enterprise data, wherever users and devices are, while ensuring that applications work quickly and seamlessly. Users, devices, applications, and data are moving outside the enterprise perimeter and zone of control, away from traditional data centers, and risk exposure is more prevalent than before.
