As many industry leaders are beginning to understand, traditional models for security are not attuned to the realities of modern business. Today, you need a model that can adapt to new complexities – the hybrid workplace, the distributed workforce, the increasing diversity of people, devices, and applications. The multitude of hacks and breaches due to challenging and changing geopolitical conditions must also be considered. Data needs to be protected, wherever it is and wherever it goes.
While the old model assumes that everything behind the corporate firewall is safe, the new model – known as Zero Trust – dictates that we “never trust, but always verify.” It’s becoming a table stake for securing the modern enterprise. Just as important, it’s become critical to ensuring that the enterprise can grow.
