Why Trust Zero Trust?

Never Trust, Always Verify

What is Zero Trust?


The Zero Trust Network model was created in 2010 by John Kindervag, principal analyst at Forrester Research. Now, ten years later, CIOs, CISOs and other corporate executives are increasingly implementing Zero Trust as the technologies that support it move into the mainstream.

The pressure to protect enterprise systems and data is growing as attacks become more sophisticated. Zero Trust is a security concept centered on the belief that organizations should never automatically trust anything inside or outside its perimeters and instead verify everything trying to connect to its systems before granting access.

The National Security Agency: Embracing a Zero Trust Security Model, provides recommendations for implementing a Zero Trust strategy.
