Whitepaper: Zero Trust


A Zero Trust model begins with strong identity and access management (IAM) solutions. The challenge is how to balance between absolute assurance (thereby promoting maximum security) and end-user productivity and usability.

It is possible to establish a Zero Trust Network Access model built on strong identity and access management solutions that balance the security needs of the enterprise with a frictionless user experience. The steps outlined in this whitepaper define how to get there.
