Organizations that adopt Zero Trust Architecture will see an improvement to security, and are also more attractive to insurers and can more easily meet regulatory compliance requirements. But getting started with adoption is often the biggest challenge.
The true essence of Zero Trust lies in embracing a process-centric approach rather than relying solely on products. CISA has established a set of maturity pillars that guide organizations in their journey toward zero trust. Understanding these pillars is essential for CISOs and CPOs looking to build a robust security framework.
Zero trust has firmly inserted itself into modern cybersecurity strategies but the perceived value of zero trust can vary widely, Organizations need to strike a balance between uninformed action and over-preparation when launching their zero trust strategy.
Zero trust will not stop over 50% of attacks by 2026 because only 10% of large firms will have mature programs, and hackers will expand the attack surface beyond zero trust coverage.
The increase in cybersecurity compliance requirements is an opportunity for Zero Trust strategies to be further embraced. This makes the best sense for the growing decentralized workforces which is one of the biggest trends to continue into 2023.
Identity-first security which focuses on the integrity of the user identity as the core of an organization's security strategy is now a prerequisite for Zero Trust architecture, and is designed to ensure that the individual is authorized throughout the user's digital journey and granted the right level of access to the appropriate digital assets.
The time is now for business leaders to implement zero-trust protocols to address cloud misconfigurations beyond the identity layer and into the SaaS app ecosystem, as doing so has become critical for organizations to be able to maintain a good security posture. Zero Trust Data Access (ZTDA) does just that.
While the wheels of digital transformation were set in motion much earlier, the pandemic accelerated their speed. It significantly impacted how organisations approach their IT ecosystem and security. Today’s landscape, with no perimeter, requires a Zero Trust approach.
Zero Trust has reached buzzword status in the security industry. But, unfortunately, many vendors that claim to provide Zero Trust solutions fall short of addressing all critical components.
