Zero Tust - What's it all about?
Zero Trust is a security concept that requires all users, even those inside the organization’s enterprise network, to be authenticated, authorized, and continuously validating security configuration and posture, before being granted or keeping access to applications and data. This approach leverages advanced technologies such as multifactor authentication, identity and access management (IAM), and next-generation endpoint security technology to verify the user’s identity and maintain system security.
Zero Trust is a significant departure from traditional network security, which followed the “trust but verify” method. The traditional approach automatically trusted users and endpoints within the organization’s perimeters, putting the organization at risk from malicious internal actors and allowing unauthorized users wide-reaching access once inside.
