Navigating the Zero Trust Journey

Digital transformation is accelerating with tectonic shifts in the way our customers are approaching IT and Information Security. These include the emergence of the Hybrid Workforce, network transformation and continued migration to the cloud. At the same time, security has become increasingly complex and difficult through a combination of more advanced threats and a reactive approach to security which has left many organizations with a large number of poorly integration point solutions. Zero Trust presents an opportunity to properly rebuild security to keep pace with these shifts in the form of reduced complexity and overall better levels of security. This means taking Zero Trust principles and making them actionable across users, applications and infrastructure, effectively rebuilding security to keep pace with these tectonic shifts.
