Zero Trust: Approaches, Use Cases, and Myths Debunked

Zero Trust: Approaches, Use Cases, and Myths Debunked

The traditional perimeter-based approach to security depends on firewalls, virtual private networks (VPNs), and web gateways to separate trusted users from untrusted users. Despite spending an estimated $143 billion on these types of security technologies in 2021, two out of three enterprises are still breached — at the rate of an average of five breaches per organization in a 12-month period! Clearly, the traditional approaches to security aren’t working.

Unfortunately, things won’t get easier in the future. The attack surface is constantly expanding and can no longer be defined by a logical perimeter. Systems and data that resided inside the traditional data center network perimeter in the past are now being moved into the cloud. In fact, more than 90 percent of organizations are moving workloads to the cloud. At the same time, they’re automating processes with DevOps, storing terabytes of additional data in big data lakes, and what used to be deployed on a single server is now operated in hundreds of containers or microservices. This proliferation of compute and associated cloud storage resources enables greater agility, productivity, and opportunity for an organization — as well as for an attacker.
