A growing number of organizations are implementing zero trust to accelerate their digital transformation

LONDON, June 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zero trust is a strategic approach to secure infrastructure and data that necessitates all users, whether in or outside an organization’s network, to constantly be authenticated, authorized, and validated for security configuration and posture before providing access to applications or data. Zero trust can be achieved both ways, with or without the integration of blockchain technology.

As the world goes more digital, particularly after the COVID-19 pandemic demonstrations, traditional perimeter-based security models are no longer sufficient to address the growing cybersecurity concerns. The zero-trust approach arguably enables organizations to be better positioned against the major reasons for security breaches (such as user impersonation, password reuse, and stolen credentials) by evaluating numerous pieces of information to confirm one's identity before granting access to the network.

The Zero Trust Market Research Report offered by GlobalData highlights the factors driving and challenging the implementation of zero trust, regulatory scenario, and the future potential of zero trust in the coming years to secure cloud-native applications.
