What is Zero Trust security?

The Zero Trust security model moves verification to the access point and trusts no person, device or entity.

When Zero Trust architecture is established with access management at the core of the Zero Trust policy, to create a Zero Trust extended ecosystem, you gain continuous authentication which allows you to check a user’s identity as they hop from application to application.

In contrast to the Zero Trust approach, the VPN model verifies the user once at the entry point to the VPN and uses a static approach to security that gives the user access to everything within the boundaries of the VPN until the user leaves the VPN.

Businesses are experiencing a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world and the zero trust model of cybersecurity enables businesses to extend security to continue to do business safely despite the chaos around them.
