The traditional four walls that protected an organisation’s data no longer exist
The rise of mobile and cloud adoption has led to more people, accessing more resources, and from more locations, than ever before, dissolving the traditional perimeter. In order to enable these mobile and cloud experiences across the modern workforce, without compromising on security, organisations are moving away from the network perimeter-centric view of security and instead focusing on access – and identity – as the new security control point. This shift requires organisations to focus resources on securely enabling access for all of the various users (employees, partners, contractors, etc.) regardless of their location, device, or network.
As a result, organisations can no longer assume trust based on whether or not the user is on the corporate network. Instead of viewing user security as two separate groups – trusted individuals, able to access everything inside an organisation, and untrusted individuals, kept on the outside – organisations now are taking a “Zero Trust” approach that assumes no one is inherently trusted, requiring verification for access.
In this world, where people are the perimeter, identity becomes the foundation of a Zero Trust model. As a model with many moving parts, the immediate question is where to start?
