As business computing increasingly moves to the cloud and employees and other users access systems via mobile devices, a new approach to network security has emerged.
Zero Trust is a new way of looking at IT security, one that shifts a fundamental approach to security.
With Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA), the network security paradigm is turned on its head. It replaces older approaches that assumed that objects located within a network architecture are innately trustworthy. Previously, once a user’s identity was confirmed, they could navigate laterally throughout the network, under the presumption that they would act responsibly and be trustworthy.
That approach meant that bad actors that had been allowed into a system could then navigate that system easily, able to access information and steal it, encrypt it or affect it in some other way.
Zero Trust uses the concept of a “protect surface” as the core to prevention. The protected surface is the most sensitive and valuable data, assets, applications and services (DAAS).
Security is focused on the protected surface, which is a significantly smaller area of the network containing items most critical to a company’s operations. Protections focus on the traffic that moves close to the microperimeter around the protect surface.
What are the advantages of Zero Trust? Here are a few core benefits:
