The challenge of securing and protecting data and endpoints is not a new requirement, but today it is more important than ever. With a rapidly expanding attack surface created by the proliferation of new types of endpoints ranging from mobile to the Internet of Things (IoT) coupled with a wave of remote global workers, you’ve got a perfect storm. The concept and implementation of a Zero Trust framework has never been more important as securing and protecting endpoints and data goes hand in hand with Zero Trust.
Zero Trust was created to address de-perimeterisation, or the erosion of the corporate network perimeter. With the consumerisation of technology and the rise of cloud-based apps CISO’s had to change their approach to assume that no traffic within an organisation’s network was any more trustworthy than traffic coming in from the outside.
