Zero Trust is a security concept that is based on the notion that organizations should not take trust for granted, regardless of whether access attempts originate from inside or outside its perimeters. An enterprise needs to verify any attempt for connection to its systems before granting access. At the same time, the defensive layers that define the Zero Trust model should enable access for enterprise users no matter where they are and no matter what device they’re using.
The balancing act between controlling accessibility and enabling usability introduces a challenge to security teams. They will need to ensure that business enablement isn’t impacted while making sure that the risk associated with users and network entities are properly managed and mitigated.
