Zero Trust

« Back to Glossary Index

Zero Trust is a security framework that assumes all network traffic is untrusted, rather than distinguishing between internal and external networks. It was developed by Forrester Research in 2009 and has since evolved to include a Zero Trust Extended Ecosystem, which emphasizes the need for strong identity and access management, as well as multi-factor authentication, to secure the workforce. Forrester refers to this critical component as “next-generation access.”
