Zero Trust Requires Effective Business-Centric Application Segmentation

To protect the network from today’s sophisticated attacks, IT security decision-makers must adopt a Zero Trust approach to network security. Hackers use multiple attack methods to find a network’s weakness, even targeting business partners and suppliers to get inside. Many enterprises today rely on outdated network defenses that protect the perimeter but will not protect them from bad actors already inside their network or risks posed by compromised users.

To properly protect their enterprises, security architects need to adopt a policy of Zero Trust in their networks and look to meet the security challenges of the 21st century by focusing on effective application segmentation aligned with business objectives.

In August 2015, Certes Networks commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate current application and network segmentation strategies in the wake of increasingly sophisticated attack methods.
