Companies have decentralized their data, assets, applications, and services across numerous settings and cloud infrastructure providers over the previous decade. The conventional, “castle-and-moat,” security model is no longer functional because network security can no longer be confined to a single location, collection of devices, or users. In this distributed cloud-native environment, the zero trust architecture was created to assist modern businesses in securing their most precious assets.
Zero trust is predicated because there is no traditional network edge. You must build a system that believes all users and services, even those within your network, are a potential threat. Before connecting to any of your applications or services, your system will require access requests to be continuously assessed. Logins, connections, and API tokens would be temporary, while users and devices would have to verify their identities and credentials regularly.
This “trust no one, always verify,” technique allows you to keep a careful eye on who has access to your DaaS (Data as a Service). Your firm needs strict access control, continual evaluation, and maximum observability in a cloud-native world where users may be physically spread, utilizing various devices, or using DaaS from both protected and unsecured networks, evaluation, and maximum observability.
