Zero Trust is a security concept that meets today's requirements for IT infrastructures - consisting of hybrid sourcing variants and the demand to be accessible remotely from anywhere at any time. It is not individual network areas that are protected; instead, access request of an identity has to be verified, no matter from which device or via which connection the user tries to access certain company resources. Authentication is based on identity- and role-based access rights via a hybrid Active Directory.
Zero Trust is based on the principle: Nothing is safe! This means that every request from your own network is checked as if it came from outside. No distinction is made between the target and the benefit of the request. Each request to the network is thus verified before each access, provided with corrections and then encrypted again. The process is supported by microsegmentation. In addition, analytics and business intelligence systems protect by constantly monitoring the processes, detecting deviations and blocking suspicious activities if necessary.
Companies need a comprehensive, long-term resilience strategy and an associated zero-trust strategy. However, this is not something that can be implemented in a time-limited IT project. This is because the concerns of all areas of the company whose work is based in some way on IT infrastructure must be included - a strategic ongoing task that will accompany companies on their path to digitalization. Start planning and choose the approach that best fits your situation and goals.
