Zero-Trust (Perimeterless Security)
The Zero-Trust Security Model is built around the premise of “never trust, always verify,” which means that devices are not trusted by default, even if they are connected to your own managed network and were previously verified.
The traditional security model which involves trusting devices or those that connect to it via a VPN, within a corporate perimeter makes little sense in distributed computing environments today.
Thus, the zero trust model promotes mutual authentication and checking the identity and integrity of devices regardless of their location. It also provides access to applications and services based on the device identity, device health, and user authentication.Back to Glossary
