Implementing Zero Trust

thumbnail (1).jpg

Zero Trust is a security model designed specifically to protect the security of sensitive data

and critical applications by leveraging network and user segmentation, preventing lateral

movement, providing Layer 7 threat prevention, and simplifying granular user-access controls.

Where traditional security models operate under the assumption that everything inside an

organization’s perimeter can be trusted, the Zero Trust model recognizes that trust is a

Session 3

The Journey to Zero Trust Starts by Tackling Complexity 

Zero Trust was born to overturn the mindset of implied trust because a user, device, or service was within a defined perimeter. With today’s exponential growth of hybrid infrastructures, perimeter boundaries have all but vanished, leaving organizations with larger and unmanageable attack surfaces. Security enforcement must start with every connection. If the basic principles of implementing a Zero Trust Network Architecture (ZTNA) are followed, the results can improve the overall security posture of an organization. But what about challenging the growth of network complexity across a hybrid surface? As organizations migrate from perimeter architectures to ZTNA, complexity undermines zero trust at every turn. This presentation will review the principles of a Zero Trust approach and identify unnecessary complexity that will compromise implementation efforts if left unchallenged.
