This is how Zero Trust strategies are gaining momentum in IT departments.
The Zero Trust concept is based on the idea that organisations should not have to trust any internal or external entity that enters their perimeter.
Teleworking has led to many corporate devices leaving the perimeter and cyber threats entering the perimeter. Traditional perimeter security is no longer enough. Today, it is vital to create a Zero Trust strategy to protect the enterprise.
Millions of remote accesses outside the usual workstation, extreme employee mobility favour security breaches in organisations.
With digital transformation there are few companies that are not using new cloud workflows and DevOps, as we accelerate the move to the cloud we must also strengthen security in the workplace.
What is Zero Trust?
Zero Trust is a way of working, thinking and acting. It gives IT people visibility into everything they need to know to secure, manage and monitor devices, users and applications on the network.
Because of teleworking, applications, data, users and their devices are moving out of the enterprise’s zone of control so the likelihood of being attacked is greater. That’s why every company should start with a Zero Trust strategy.
79% of knowledge workers worldwide are teleworkers.

76% of your Research respondents expect an increase in remote access in the coming years.
In addition, with the rise of BYOD (bring your own device), IT staff have less control over the devices users use to access corporate applications and data. Traditional perimeter architectures are no longer effective.
In the wake of the pandemic, 2 out of 5 companies are considering eliminating the use of email because of the high level of attacks and vulnerabilities it presents.
How does Zero Trust really work and how can I start implementing it?
It provides protected access for companies to offer to their employees, suppliers, consultants or partners. Traditional access technologies typically use many hardware and software devices to give access to the network to any user with the right credentials. Studies show that the vast majority of breaches are caused by theft or misuse of these credentials.
The use of the cloud allows Zero Trust to be implemented as it only provides access to the applications that the user needs and not to the entire network. This principle of least privilege is used for all existing devices.
In addition, cloud-based security integrates with existing authentication such as Okta or Microsoft Active Directory, or by providing own authentication solutions with advanced security features. This request for authentication decreases the likelihood of an attacker gaining access to our network as they will have to steal two identities. The cloud increases security without the need for additional hardware or software.
