'Zero Trust': Great Concept, Bad Name

'Zero Trust': Great Concept, Bad Name
Alain Sanchez, EMEA CISO and Senior Evangelist, Fortinet
Vishal Salvi, Senior Vice President and CISO, Infosys

The COVID-19 pandemic ushered in a surge of cyberattacks, including ransomware, botnets and even adaptations of the old Mirai malware. Amidst this chaos, the "zero trust" concept is a pillar of superior cybersecurity, providing a way to permanently and dynamically assess whether any device, application, object, or entity should have the right to access network resources. This approach embraces devices, management and, of course, the users. But does it mean companies will have to stop trusting their employees, customers and partners?
