Why Read This Report

A Zero Trust (ZT) network abolishes the idea of a trusted network inside the corporate perimeter. A ZT network creates microperimeters of control around an enterprise's sensitive data assets and provides visibility into how it uses data across its entire digital business ecosystem to win, serve, and retain customers. As security professionals adopt ZT principles, they need a defined methodology to build an innovative network to realize the benefits of a ZT strategy. This report provides S&R leaders best practices and a five-step process to achieve Zero Trust more quickly. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
