Businesses continue to evolve as digital technologies reshape industries. The workforce is mobile, and speed and ef ciency are imperative, necessitating dynamic, cloud-based infrastructures and connectivity, as well as unhindered, secure application access — from anywhere, on any device, at any time. Leaders must remove hurdles to progress, but new business initiatives and processes increase the attack surface, potentially putting the company at risk.
Many businesses are embracing a zero trust security model to meet these challenges head on. A zero trust architecture assumes that everything on the network is hostile; gone are the days of “inside versus outside” and perimeter security, as too is the mantra of “trust, but verify.” In their place, organizations must adopt a “verify and never trust” outlook, authenticating and authorizing every device and user before delivering applications or data, and monitoring application access and network activity through logging and behavioral analytics.
One of the many use cases that supports a zero trust security strategy is enabling secure and uni ed single sign-on across all application types.
