Executive Summary

Zero trust offers a modern approach for security to meet modern work designs and tackle the cybersecurity challenges facing organizations. The rise in remote work, the relentless waves of ransomware and other cybersecurity attacks, and the need to redress fundamental weaknesses in perimeter-based security have coalesced to drive interest and uptake in zero trust architectures. First touted in 2004, organizations are progressing with zero trust designs to increase the efficacy of cybersecurity protections and build a stronger foundation to address the new challenges of hybrid work, data protection, and security. Organizations view strengthening identity and access management as the key design modification for zero trust initiatives, and confidential files the most important data source to protect. Most organizations expect to be fully deployed with a zero trust architecture within two years.

This white paper reports on how organizations are deploying and planning to deploy a zero trust architecture. It offers direction to decision-makers and influencers on best practices and solutions to support the move to zero trust.
