Zero Trust Model: adopting it to improve network security and performance

Firewalls, proxy servers, VPNs, and other classic resources used in the security of corporate networks find their maximum effectiveness when there is a well-defined perimeter to defend. Unfortunately for many businesses, the perimeter of the corporate network has increasingly blurred boundaries, as remote access both for employees who telework and for third parties who now offer remote administration or assistance becomes more widespread. As if that wasn’t enough, the increasingly widespread use of applications and services provided in the cloud has brought email boxes, archives, and other important resources outside the company perimeter.

Zero trust approach: making cybersecurity more distributed

A scenario that justifies an integration of corporate security according to the zero trust model, which shifts the lines of defense from the corporate network perimeter to individual resources. A model suitable for a more distributed cybersecurity, which does not distinguish between inside and outside the company, but enables digital systems and services to defend themselves autonomously based on shared policies. A model based on the use of powerful ID management tools to identify the identity of every person and every device that must access or interact with systems, applications, and data, wherever they are connected, even on public networks.

Improving perimeter protections

Used to strengthen existing perimeter protections, the zero trust approach helps solve many of the performance issues caused by the increase in remote users and services. It is a solution for bottlenecks on VPNs and corporate connections to the public network, often caused by (useless) traffic crossing the network perimeter of data exchanged between cloud applications and users accessing remotely.
