Zero Trust is not a solution or technology but rather an approach to security based on the principal of “never trust, always verify”. This approach ensures every user’s identity is verified, their devices are validated, and their privileged access is intelligently limited to just what they need – and taken away when they don’t. As the embodiment of this model, Identity Security offers a set of technologies and best practices that are foundational to achieving Zero Trust.
