Zero Trust security is widely accepted as being a security model based on the principle of ‘trust no one, verify everywhere’ – i.e., no entity can be trusted. When applications are being delivered from multiple clouds and delivery points – authentication plays a key role because the access point becomes the front line of security. The access point is the entryway for a user to access enterprise information / applications.
Authentication is commonly executed with a user name and password. However, a user name and password combination is easily breached.
Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) is a common factor in a Zero Trust policy to validate a user’s identity before allowing access to enterprise information / applications.
To increase the security of the Zero Trust network, Thales adds access management to test the user’s identity against a larger set of adpative and contextual attributes.
