Over the past several years, Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) has gained increased interest from the global information security community. Over the years, several organizations have adopted Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) and experienced considerable security improvements. One such example is Google, which implemented a BeyondCorp initiative embodying ZTA principles. The tech giant removed trust assumptions from its internal network, focusing instead on verifying users and devices for every access request, regardless of their location. This transformation has allowed Google to offer its workforce more flexibility while maintaining robust security.
We also see relevant guidelines emerging from commercial entities and government bodies. Specifically, a memorandum was released detailing recommendations for US agencies and departments on how to transition to a “Zero Trust” architecture.
