Identity & Authentication

Zero Trust

Zero Trust is a security framework developed by Forrester Research in 2009 that throws away the idea that we should have a trusted internal network vs an untrusted external network. Rather we should consider all network traffic untrusted. This research has evolved to discuss an Zero Trust Extended Ecosystem that includes the need to secure the workforce through strong identity and access management, along with multi-factor authentication. Forrester has coined the term “next-generation access” to describe this critical component.
