The concept of Zero Trust has been with us for over a decade. In a world where the network perimeter is no longer delineated nor secure, devices within the corporate network can no longer be blindly trusted. With increasingly advanced threats, a rapid transition to remote work, and the proliferation of cloud services and IoT devices, Zero Trust is now gaining traction worldwide. Users and devices must be dynamically and continuously authenticated and verified, with access to resources restricted according to least privilege principles.
But since Zero Trust is all about verification, how can you verify that all of your users, devices, and systems are following the framework? How do you know whether one of these controls is compromised? Network detection and response (NDR) can accelerate adoption of an effective Zero Trust framework by enhancing the IT visibility organizations need to get going. They can continually monitor and safeguard network traffic, validate policy enforcement, and support enhanced collaboration between traditionally siloed teams.
