A Zero Trust framework assumes that a network’s security is always at risk from both internal and external threats. It is used as a philosophy to organize and strategize an approach to counter those threats.
By default, Zero Trust security ensures that data and resources cannot be accessed. Only certain information can be accessed by those who work within the network and under certain circumstances. Zero Trust strategies transcend people as well. All devices within the network must be authenticated and authorized to operate.
Why is this so important?
IT companies have traditionally protected internal networks using perimeter security strategies. The problem is the changing ways industries do business today. Perimeter security strategies use firewalls and network-based tools to identify and allow users in and out of the network. Companies are moving to hybrid cloud environments, which can weaken perimeter security strategies.
Thousands of people are now connecting to internal networks from their home computers as a result of shifting work patterns that resulted from the global pandemic. There is typically a global spread of users, resources and data, making it difficult to connect and secure them quickly. Also, home users do not have the same network protection as office users.
To make matters worse, many companies use a patchwork of security solutions and tools with poor integration. Because of this, internal security and IT teams spend a lot of time performing manual tasks and cleaning up data. An increase in data breaches makes this task even more challenging. Organizations looking to enhance their network security environment might find Zero Trust the right solution.
