In response to rapidly evolving cybersecurity threats, Zero Trust, a concept that emerged over 15 years ago, is now a strategic priority for government network agencies. Following reports from the Defense Innovation Board (DIB) and the American Council for Technology - Industry Advisory Council, the federal government is now putting Zero Trust at the forefront of its increased cybersecurity spending. What is Zero Trust (ZT) exactly? The concept is a departure from perimeter-based cybersecurity as the focus shifts toward individual access and away from protecting wide segments of the network. By narrowing the scope of network defenses, and increasing protection for resources as they span across an increasingly distributed network. Sounds easy enough, right? While there are many facets of implementing a Zero Trust strategy, this blog will review a few main architecture concepts, including ZT Network Requirements, ZT Framework, and ZT Visibility fabric.
