Digital Identity: The Foundation of Your Zero Trust Strategy
Digital transformation has rendered your perimeter-based security insufficient to secure your enterprise and your customers. Global consumption of online services has doubled. Remote access is the new normal for workplaces around the globe. To succeed in this new normal, you need to shift the paradigm of "trusted" vs "untrusted" networks into a Zero Trust strategy for your enterprise.
The National Institutes of Standards and Technology (NIST) recommends evaluating trust based on knowing all the users, devices, and systems attempting to access your environment. That's where digital identity comes into play:
- Who or what are they?
- What are they doing?
- What do you expect them to be doing?
- Do they have permission to do it?
