Traditional cybersecurity models classify users as “trusted” and “untrusted.” However, trust can be exploited. For example, 80% of data breaches today are caused by misuse of privileged credentials. The increasing sophistication of attackers requires a comprehensive Zero Trust strategy to "remove trust and reduce overall cybersecurity risk across the network, endpoints and cloud.
A Zero Trust network architecture can help minimize risk by controlling access to critical assets based on roles and “need-to-know," while also inspecting that traffic for malicious content and unauthorized activity all the way through Layer 7. It can simplify your operations, compliance and auditing by automating policy management and consistently enforcing policies across networks, endpoints and clouds.
