10 Ways a Zero Trust Architecture Protects Against Ransomware
While ransomware has been around for decades, its prevalence has exploded over the last two years. These attacks used to be perpetrated by individuals; now they’re launched by networked groups of affiliates who buy and sell each other’s specialized skills and toolkits. Attacks were once unfocused and one- dimensional; now they use targeted, multi-layered tactics that are much harder to defend against and that command much higher ransoms.

Zero trust is an approach to security that’s based on the notion that a breach has already occurred. Architectures, access control policies, and monitoring and authentication tactics are put in place to mitigate the amount and severity of the damage an attacker can cause.
