“Do not trust anyone!” The catchphrase that best describes zero trust, is a security concept encouraging organizations to automatically distrust all network activity. As this security concept gains traction, many security providers are flooding the market with solutions. In this article, we will unpack the top technologies for a zero trust cybersecurity architecture.
There’s been a paradigm shift over the past decade and a half in the world of cybersecurity. Whereas older models and systems prioritized perimeter defense, the definition of “perimeter” itself has changed over time. Today, businesses are increasingly mobile and remote, utilizing cloud servers to extend the workforce far outside the office or headquarters.
These changes are all the more necessary in our current environment of pandemic response. Our mandated practices of social distancing and work from home (WFH) have created an environment in which every company is rethinking its perimeters in real time. These challenging times call for new practices, and zero trust framework is the future of cybersecurity.
Cloud technology has revolutionized the way businesses operate all across the world. Cloud servers enable any company to leverage others’ computing capabilities to mobilize their own workforces, enabling greater flexibility in all business operations. Whether it’s enabling the storage of sensitive data or work from home, the cloud is key to all businesses’ future.
