As naming goes, Zero Trust is easily understood. No one is trusted implicitly. In terms of cybersecurity, organisations should trust no one, whether an insider or an outsider, with unverified access to sensitive IT assets.

That’s not to say, of course, that no actor should ever be granted privileged access to network resources, rather, a security scheme is needed that constantly requires users to not only prove who they are, but also to prove that they have both the need and the authorisation to access said resource before entry is granted.

In other words, many other security paradigms assume, at least somewhat, that activity is legitimate until proven otherwise. Zero Trust, on the other hand, assumes that no activity is by default legitimate, and therefore requires proof to the contrary before allowing privileged access to sensitive resources.

Read this whitepaper to learn the what, how and why of Zero Trust cybersecurity – along with gaining an understanding of how to implement an effective Zero Trust strategy for your organisation.
