Why siloed thinking could be undermining your zero trust strategy

Zero trust is becoming synonymous with secure cloud transformation, and for good reason. IT leaders are increasingly finding that legacy security infrastructure cannot keep pace with the nature of modern business. There are new threats, new ways of working, and greater demand for simplified user experiences all pointing to the need for a dramatic rethink around the concept of trust. The sheer scale of the cyber security challenge means businesses can no longer afford to give end users the benefit of the doubt – trust needs to be earned.

Although legacy security infrastructure, such as VPNs and firewalls, do a good job of verifying identity initially, users are then trusted implicitly. Unfortunately, many businesses are all too familiar with the damage that implicitly trusting devices based on IP addresses or login credentials can create, rendering most security controls obsolete. This is something threat actors are becoming all too aware of.
