Our democracy is under attack. We are in an era where digital assets are being weaponized and used against us. The fragile state of our democracy is highlighted by election meddling by foreign interests, database breaches of both political parties, and most recently a high-profile breach of trust.

Why the Path Towards Zero Trust Starts with Next-Gen Access

Zero Trust Security has gained a lot of popularity over the last six months. Almost daily you can read articles about this security strategy (e.g., TechRepublic, CSO, Security Current). Both analysts (e.g., Forrester) and security professionals acknowledge the benefits it offers in the context of establishing effective ways to minimize the risk of falling victim to a cyber-attack. The reason why so many embrace Zero Trust Security is most likely anchored around its simplicity ― with today’s porous network perimeter, untrusted actors already exist both inside and outside the network.
