Zero Trust Security is championed by industry leaders including The National Institute of Standards and Technology, US Department of Homeland Security, Google, Forrester, Gartner, and Centrify. Zero Trust implies that users inside a network are no more trustworthy than users outside a network. Therefore, traditional perimeter-based security approaches are inadequate. Zero Trust Security assumes that everything — including users, endpoints, networks, and resources — are always untrusted and must be verified to decrease the chance of a major breach. Consequently, effective Zero Trust Security requires strong offensive access controls for all users – end user, privileged user, outsourced IT, citizens – to applications and infrastructure.
With the paradigm shift from “trust, but verify” to “never trust, always verify”, effective Zero Trust Security requires a unified identity platform consisting of four key elements: verify the user, verify the device, give just enough access, and learn and adapt. Combined, these elements help ensure secure access to resources while they significantly reduce the possibility of access by bad actors.
