Strengthening the nation’s cybersecurity requires more — and better — collaboration between the public and private sectors. That’s why we are honored to announce that the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)’s National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) has selected Zscaler as one of its partners in a new Zero Trust Architecture Project. Zscaler will work alongside the NCCoE and other top Federal IT vendors on different approaches for implementing zero trust architectures.
“We received an overwhelming response from the vendor community on this important project,” said Natalia Martin, acting director of the NCCoE, in the announcement. “Implementing a zero trust architecture has become a Federal cybersecurity mandate and a business imperative.”
Top industry leaders will come together to demonstrate various approaches to implementing a zero trust architecture. These approaches will use a diverse mix of products and capabilities — and the effort will provide valuable "how to" guidance and lessons learned.
As Federal employees continue to work from anywhere, and more and more applications move from inside the data center to outside the network perimeter, network and security teams are shifting their focus from securing the network to protecting users, devices, and business resources.
As we like to say at Zscaler, zero trust is a team sport — and the NIST NCCoE is taking the initiative to bring together best-of-breed zero trust leaders. We’re committed to collaborating with customers and partners to demonstrate different, practical approaches to implement a zero trust architecture.
As we know, no one solution fits every situation. Zscaler is honored to be a part of this coalition working side by side to realize the opportunity for zero trust to strengthen every agency’s cyber defenses.
