In April 2015, VMware commissioned Forrester Consulting
to explore the hypothesis that businesses that are looking
for improved agility, security, and compliance in a more
virtualized world need to pursue a Zero Trust (ZT) security
model — where there is no longer a trusted and untrusted
network, but rather all networks are untrusted and need to
be secure — with network virtualization and microsegmentation
as important pieces for enabling this model.
