Cyber security threats are never going away. As companies continue to navigate the best methods of protecting themselves, it’s more important than ever to consider implementing Zero Trust security framework as one option to meet the demands of today’s cyber security needs.   

Zero Trust or Zero Trust Architecture is an emerging security model for securing workplace networks through cybersecurity measures. In traditional work environments, companies operate on the outdated assumption that everything inside an organization’s network should be implicitly trusted with in-office security measures.  

Zero Trust operates as a full ecosystem of control, assuming company cyber breaches can and will happen at any time, anywhere. Zero Trust is just one method used to create a safe environment for organizations from the top down and standardize user experience through secured systems. Zero Trust can look different on case-by-case basis, however, in order to fully maximize security, a dedicated and detailed strategy is necessary.

The base solutions of Zero Trust policies are strong 2-factor authentication, leveraged network segmentation and restricting users to the least privileged access. By implementing valid authentication at each secure level and preventing lateral movement across organizations, Zero Trust is one way to ensure a standard policy to defend against cybersecurity vulnerabilities.  

The phrase “Never Trust, Always Verify” is more important than ever as our work spaces remain virtual. Companies now find themselves needing to meet the bigger security demands of evolving work spaces such as in-office, hybrid, WFH and WFA. Security measures need to be readily available everywhere. Increasingly globalized networks and the expansion of endpoints necessitates strategies like Zero Trust, to protect your enterprise from sophisticated cyber threats.
