Securing your business is becoming near-impossible in the present-day digital age. With a projected 25% of all jobs in North America going remote by the end of 2022, cybersecurity experts are looking for new ways to fully secure virtual and multi-cloud networks – protecting your business’s most sensitive data as much as possible.
With this in mind, Zero Trust cybersecurity protocols have been rising in popularity. This has occurred even more since the latest request of President Joe Biden, prompting governmental organizations to make the transition as quickly as possible.
But many business owners have been left with two questions: What is Zero Trust? Is it worth it to implement at this stage of the game?
While we know the transition feels overwhelming, we’re here to provide strategic insight and information about the benefits that you can gain from a Zero Trust policy.
Below, we’re discussing the most recent year in review for Zero Trust security measures, and the added benefit that your organization could gain simply by implementing core elements of its framework.
Where did Zero Trust policy ideation come from?
Zero Trust originated in 2010, right at the intersection of the ’00s and the 2010′s. This came at a perfect time, as internet use was at an all-time high, and a new generation of business owners began to establish themselves on the web.
What are the core concepts of Zero Trust?
As the name may allude to, the core concepts of Zero Trust require everyone to assume that the network can be hostile at any point, as can the people in it. Everyone must be validated on an ongoing, rolling basis to minimize instances of access abuse and network risk. This is key to securing your network.
Does Zero Trust security work?
Yes, the Zero Trust cybersecurity strategy is one of the most solid that is currently available in the industry. This is for two reasons: It actively defends against account misuse and abuse, and it completes ongoing, rolling surveillance to keep the network as secure as possible.
