Perhaps nothing is as important to your brand reputation as keeping customer data private. Today, with enterprises working in such diverse, distributed ecosystems, security must be a primary focus — and zero trust is the right approach. By assuming there are no trusted sources, every user, every device and every connection is rigorously verified. And using microsegementation, in the event of a breach, the area of data compromised can be dramatically reduced using zero trust.


Putting zero trust into action to preserve customer privacy drives transparency and accountability across the enterprise. Using zero trust technologies to build in privacy and security at the beginning helps ensure anyone accessing customer data is validated with strong authentication. This continuous verification relies on context so that every user, every device, every connection must prove a legitimate need.  Zero trust is always on the job to proactively find and address a compromise quickly and effective.

The right combination of security capabilities — empowered by a zero trust approach — is a good first step toward success.
