It’s called a 'data breach' for a reason. Bad actors are after your sensitive data. Users, endpoints, email, and cloud applications are communication channels that serve as attack vectors. In a "Zero Trust" model where you cannot trust anything in or out of your network: focusing the perimeter around the data and protecting it with intelligent authentication is the best security approach. Most authentication solutions on the market authenticate access to almost everything BUT your data. Organizations invest heavily in DLP policies to have visibility and protection around their sensitive data. In fact, organizations spend the majority of security resources around threat and data protection solutions to protect data. Blindly allowing users to access the data without checking their identity negates the entire security stack.
To implement Zero Trust successfully in your organization, the best products are the ones that give you the most visibility into who is accessing your data both on-premises and in the cloud. Before a user is granted access, all risk factors surrounding the user and their authenticating device need to be evaluated. Other risk factors that compromise the level of assurance could be malware, bad IP addresses, malicious files, and networks, or stolen credentials on the darknet. Simply put: protect your data and trust no one.
