Understanding what a Zero Trust Architecture is and how to implement one can help enhance security.
As more companies migrate to the cloud, the way that companies protect data changes as well. In a traditional on-premises network architecture, companies were able to follow the “trust but verify” philosophy.
However, security professionals often contend that protecting cloud data needs to take the “never trust always verify” approach.
The basic principles of a Zero Trust enterprise cybersecurity architecture include:
- Assuming breach
- Assuming enterprise-owned environment is no different or more trustworthy than non-enterprise-owned environment
- Continuously analyzing and evaluating risk
- Continuously enacting risk mitigation protections
- Minimizing user and asset access to resources
- Continually authenticating and authorizing identity and security for each access request
The use cases for implementing a Zero Trust Architecture approach are considerable. For example, Zero Trust could be used when managing third-party, non-employee access.
To mitigate the risks associated with outsiders accessing enterprise resources, Zero Trust can be used to create a portal for those who need network connectivity to perform their tasks.
Using Zero Trust enables organizations to offer access while obscuring enterprise resources.
