Insider threats are on the rise. Is your security up to the task? With the rise in remote work and more workload migration to the cloud, the scope and consequence of insider threats are exploding. Many organizations are turning to a zero trust approach to modernize security and help meet these threats. Zero trust not only continuously verifies users but also can help reduce data exposure if there is a breach.

Putting zero trust into action to proactively manage insider threats helps limit disruption, strengthens resiliency and protects users and resources — especially in hybrid cloud environments. Zero trust technologies help discover risk trends across data, identity, applications and more. Using this information along with context-based access controls, zero trust can isolate threats as well as proactively detect exploits across your enterprise.

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