Getting started with zero trust

WHAT IS  ZERO TRUST?

Zero trust is a security strategy in which the organization denies access requests by default, trusting no one and nothing.

WHY IS ZERO TRUST IMPORTANT?

With cyberattacks constantly evolving, companies need to protect their data; a deny-by-default approach has proven effective in this battle.
