Zero Trust may seem like a daunting security architecture to implement. But Zero Trust is more a change of mindset towards cybersecurity than it is new tools and solutions. Zero Trust is a concept that can help you simplify and strengthen your defenses by adopting “never trust/always verify” principles. The truth is you probably already have many of the tools you need to get started. In addition to using existing security solutions, new tools and technologies can be added incrementally.
