The concept of “Zero Trust” was coined back in 2010, on the basis that traditional perimeter security models failed to provide adequate protection because the idea of a trusted internal network and untrusted external network is inherently flawed. The solution is to change the trust model, so that no user is automatically trusted.

Selecting Endpoint Visibility, Management for WFH Employees

Remote work is driving more unstructured data sprawl than ever in the history of digital anything.
