What is the zero-trust approach in cyber security?

Trusted firewalls, VPNs or multi-factor authentication should not be the end-all in cybersecurity and should never be relied on as a default

Zero trust is the non-binding concept that every action a user or device takes is subject to some form of a policy decision, a verification of every attempt a client makes to access their information. Therefore, this means that no user or device has default access to your organization’s network.

Trust no one. 

Trusted firewalls, VPNs or multi-factor authentication should not be the end-all in cybersecurity and should never be relied on as a default. Zero-trust security is described as “trust but verify.” In effect, it is becoming a “new defensive normal” in cybersecurity, attempting to stay one step ahead of the hackers by “eyeing” every user access event.

Zero-trust security extends to employees. Now in order to get access to the network, company employees will need to pass even more security protocols. The frequency of cybersecurity training will increase. 

Trust. No. One.

  • Zero trust allows for improved authentication and authorization. 
  • Eventually, users only have to enter credentials once. 
  • Greater control over data access means you can grant access to specific data to the right audience.
  • Entry decision-making gives you a much richer picture of what’s happening in your environment, improving attention to suspiciousness. 

A challenge for companies is the need to invest time in restructuring their network security and access control at every level. However, not every organization will be ready or have the tools to implement a zero-trust defence.
