What is Zero Trust?

Zero trust is a cybersecurity concept that assumes no one should be trusted by default, regardless of their digital identity, location, or network connection. It’s no different than verifying the identity of an individual before granting them access to a secure area, even if they have already been inside. In a zero trust environment, users and devices are continuously authenticated and authorized.

Instead of relying on traditional cybersecurity methods, zero trust is all about strong authentication, strict access controls, and continuous monitoring. This approach assumes that threats can exist both outside and inside the network, so every user and device connected is considered untrusted until demonstrated otherwise. Zero trust is considered one of the most effective ways to prevent data breaches and cybersecurity incidents.
