What is Zero Trust Architecture?

Zero Trust Architecture is a security model that assumes that individuals or systems inside an organization’s network cannot be trusted and must be verified before they are granted access to network resources. This is in contrast to traditional security models, which often assume that individuals or systems inside the network are trusted and only external threats need to be mitigated.

In a Zero Trust Architecture, every access request is treated as if it is coming from an external threat. This means that all access requests must be authenticated and authorized before they are granted, regardless of whether they are coming from inside or outside the network. This can be achieved through a variety of measures such as multi-factor authentication, access controls, and network segmentation.

The goal of Zero Trust Architecture is to reduce the attack surface of an organization by limiting access to only those individuals or systems that are authorized to access specific resources. This can help to reduce the risk of data breaches, malware infections, and other security threats.
