Almost every security breach includes users as a target, source, or associated party. Organizations need to come to an understanding (quickly) that there cannot be, under any circumstances, an interruption or degradation of the user experience for internal users or customers. This is a critical element to the organization’s success. To do so, security teams will need to make security invisible and assume that everyone or every thing is not trusted until proven otherwise.
As a result, Zero Trust security is the new benchmark that organizations are setting their sights on. However, depending on who is talking about it, there is a significant difference in what constitutes a Zero Trust architecture. In turn, this creates a level of confusion in the market. Zero Trust workforce initiatives need to begin by focusing on identity, access, and data.
In this discussion, we will cover where Zero Trust is today and what we believe Zero Trust will become in the future—Adaptive Trust.
