Zero Trust is the designated new IT security concept for companies. It is a proactive approach to not only reduce the risk of attack but also to minimize damage in the event of an attack.
The core of Zero Trust is based on an integrated basic idea in which everything required (identities, devices, network, ...) is involved and verified for every IT access. Previously separate IT security disciplines merge into one IT security platform.
It is a paradigm shift based on three principles:
- Verify Explicitly
- Principle of least privilege
- Attacks are the rule, not the exception
