What is Zero Trust?

Zero Trust is a security best practice that views trust as a vulnerability. It’s centered in strict, continuous identity verification driven by a sharp focus on authentication and authorization for each user, device, application, and transaction. It’s all about ensuring that the right individuals are accessing the right resources at the right time and for the right reasons.

Never trust, always verify

Today's security leaders must protect borderless networks while giving users the anytime, anywhere access they need to be productive. This new landscape requires an identity-centric strategy aimed at strengthening an organization’s security posture. That means securing all digital identities at every access point, and for all systems. Importantly, the strategy enables organizations to reap the benefits of identity-focused security without sacrificing user convenience and efficiency.

Your Zero Trust checklist for success

Implementing a Zero Trust strategy starts with ensuring a full understanding of all the moving parts and the processes that will be affected, including:

  • Identifying what needs to be secured by asking questions and taking inventory
  • Mapping data flows across the network to analyze network and asset behavior
  • Define and enforce policies about who needs what access when and why
  • Monitor network traffic to identify anomalous access and update policies

With this groundwork in place, you’ll be in a good position to start building the foundation of a Zero Trust strategy.
