Today’s security is not very secure. In fact, Forrester estimates that 80 percent of all hacking-related data breaches involve compromised credentials for privileged access (higher access rights than other users), such as passwords, tokens, and certificates.

Clearly, standard access management and security policies. But how can organizations protect their businesses against cyberattacks, while still fostering new business growth?

The answer lies in Zero Trust, which centers on the concept that organizations should never trust anything inside or outside its perimeters. While the legacy model of “trust, but verify” used to be effective, Zero Trust advocates for a “never trust, always verify” mentality with a core principle of enforcing least privilege.
