What is Zero Trust and why is it important for businesses today?

Our information security lead and ‘ethical hacker’ Dave Higgs explains everything about the concept of Zero Trust in our latest guide. Using the ‘medieval castle’ analogy he provides some useful insight into areas for any business to consider when embarking on a Zero Trust journey.

The “Zero Trust” methodology is a concept born out of a response to the emerging threats and a changing IT landscape. The basis for this methodology is that even if someone is inside the ‘trusted’ part of your network, they should still be treated like someone who is outside of this network.

Regardless of where the request originates or what resource it accesses, Zero Trust teaches us to “never trust, always verify.”
