Traditional perimeter-based security relies on trying to separate the “bad guys” from the “good guys” and assumes that systems and traffic within the confines of the corporate network can
be trusted. Zero Trust assumes that the bad guys are already in your network and have access to your applications and systems.
As the perimeter dissolves, how can organizations protect access to their most valuable resources – data, applications, and infrastructure – on-prem or in the cloud? The only practical control plane still available across all networks, devices, users, applications, etc. are Identity-centric controls. The bottom line is that with Zero Trust, no actor can be trusted unless they’re continually verified. It’s a holistic, strategic approach to security that ensures that everyone and every device granted access is who and what they say they are.
This whitepaper will help you understand how Identity is the new battleground in cyber security, how a Zero Trust approach helps protect against identity-based attacks, the key elements of Zero Trust, and how Identity Security provides the controls you need to achieve a Zero Trust approach.
