Zero Trust has quickly become a cybersecurity mandate and also the most abused term in the industry. The core tenants of Zero Trust are rooted in the ability to deliver secure access, which is arguably the foundation and fundamentals of any Zero Trust architecture. Hence the rise of Zero Trust Network Access and demise of legacy access solutions like VPNs.

In this episode, we discuss the role of Zero Trust Network Access in strengthening and simplifying access controls for today’s hybrid workforce as they connect from anywhere to multi-cloud, on-premises and even legacy applications. This includes how to reduce the attack surface due to digital sprawl and even reduce complexity for improved user-experience and operational efficiency.
