These days, when you hear discussions about cybersecurity, the term zero trust comes up in a lot of the conversations. So thought we should explore what zero trust really is, what it means, and how it could help protect us from cyber threats. The main concepts behind zero Trust is never trust, always verify, which means that devices should never be trusted by default, even if they are connected to a permissioned network like a company network, and even if they have been verified before. Zero Trust is really designed to protect modern environments by using strong authentication methods, leveraging network segmentation, preventing lateral movement within a company network, and leveraging least access policies for all access. Traditional security models operate on the outdated assumption that everything inside a company network should be trusted. But in today's cybersecurity threat environment, that model is a recipe for disaster. There's a growing number of cybersecurity tools plus policies and procedures that can help you implement this critical protection for your network today.
