Current cybersecurity practices are woefully unprepared to meet the complexities of modern networks. Cloud services, remote users, personally-owned devices, mobile company assets, and other forms of tech regularly move from outside the network in, and a once-safe device can’t be assumed to be safe again.
It’s here that a new paradigm in cybersecurity thinking emerges: Zero trust. In essence, a zero-trust approach to security assumes that every network is breached, every machine is compromised, and every user is (unwittingly or not) at risk.
No one and nothing on a zero-trust network can be trusted until it proves it’s not an undercover threat to organizational security. It might sound paranoid, but it might also be the best plan to secure networks against ever-evolving threats that can strike at any time.
