What is Zero Trust Architecture

Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) is defined as a security model designed to minimize lateral movement using the guiding principles of “never trust, always verify”, least privileged access, and assume breach.

Verify Identity Explicitly

Always authenticate and authorize based on all available data points, including identity, location, device health, etc.

Use Least Privileged Access

Limit user access with Just-In-Time and Just-Enough-Access (JIT/JEA), risk-based adaptive policies, and data protection to help secure data and productivity.

Assume Breach

Minimize blast radius and segment access. Verify end-to-end encryption and use analytics to get visibility, drive threat detection, and improve defenses.

Frequently asked questions about Zero Trust Architecture

Here are some of our most frequently asked questions and answers.

What type of company will benefit from Zero Trust Architecture?

Companies across various industries, especially those handling sensitive data or operating in highly regulated sectors such as finance, healthcare, and government, can benefit significantly from Zero Trust implementation. Additionally, organizations with distributed workforces, remote access requirements, or a reliance on cloud-based services can also reap the rewards of the enhanced security and data protection. In short, really any company worried about the security of their data can benefit from a Zero Trust Architecture.

Why is Zero Trust implementation important?

Traditional security models operate under the assumption that everything inside the network can be trusted. However, with the increasing sophistication of cyber threats, this approach is no longer sufficient. Zero Trust implementation ensures that security measures are applied at every level of access, reducing the likelihood of successful cyberattacks.

Can Zero Trust work with existing security measures?

Yes, Zero Trust can be integrated with existing security measures to enhance overall security posture. It complements traditional security approaches by adding additional layers of protection and reducing reliance on perimeter-based defenses.

How does Zero Trust benefit organizations?

Zero Trust implementation offers several key benefits to organizations, including improved security posture, reduced risk of data breaches, enhanced visibility and control over network traffic, better compliance with regulatory requirements, and increased resilience against evolving cyber threats. The underlying data governance model, implemented with tools like data loss prevention, provides a transition to a proactive versus reactive security posture.

How can organizations measure the effectiveness of Zero Trust?

Organizations can measure the effectiveness of Zero Trust implementation by monitoring key security metrics such as access controls, incident detection and response times, user behavior analytics, and compliance with security policies. Regular security assessments and audits can also help evaluate the overall security posture.

Will Zero Trust lock down my devices, applications, and network so they are hard to use?

Any good security solution should work with the business and not against it. While there will be change when implementing Zero Trust, it can be done as a phased approach and in a way that keeps in mind the organizations need to function at a high level while still securing your data assets from those who might look to misuse them.
