10 years ago the zero trust model was created as a way to improve application security. It
seemed straight forward, ensure access to apps is always secure, that it’s based on least
privilege and have visibility into all user activity. But network-centric technologies of the
past made achieving zero trust security impossible, placing users on net, allowing access prior
to authorization and limiting visibility to IP addresses and ports, not users. For a time the
model struggled to find a foothold within IT. Until now.
Zero Trust, from theory to practice
Zero trust network access (ZTNA) technology secures access to private apps without
ever placing users on the network
App segmentation replaces network
Apps are never exposed to the
Encrypted TLS-tunnels become the new network
User experience is seamless from any
As your company looks to embrace mobility and transform
to the cloud, it’s up to you to ensure that apps are accessed securely. You’ll need to
find a way to achieve zero trust security.
