Zero Trust architecture and relationship with cybersecurity
The complex needs of the business environment present a tremendous challenge to traditional approaches to perimeter and cybersecurity. The “perimeter” is fluid, and hence the “never trust, always verify” concept of the Zero Trust security model is gaining traction. The groundwork and preparation required to implement this approach needs more visibility into the network regarding users and traffic. Creating segmentation within the IT architecture and enabling context-based access offers unique paths to address risks from unauthorized access and unauthenticated logins. It also elevates the need to have trusted access based on identity.
As a cybersecurity practice, the Zero Trust architecture removes implicit trust. This implies that the organization has an inventory of critical assets and the means to observe those for any attacks. The “least access” approach necessary for complete Zero Trust architecture brings about changes in access patterns for users, applications, workflows and infrastructure. With this, businesses hope to reduce the risks inherent in cloud and hybrid IT architecture, gain better control over these environments, and be more closely aligned with compliance requirements for the business.
