Why Zero Trust?

Traditional cybersecurity strategies focused on network perimeter defense are inadequate to secure the cloud, IoT, mobile, “work from home” reality of 2021 and beyond.

What is Zero Trust

“Zero Trust” describes a data-centric security model built on the principles of least privilege that eliminates the idea of trusted or untrusted networks, devices, people or processes, and shifts to a model that relies on strong governance, real-time risk analysis, and automation.
