The Five Steps to Approaching Zero Trust

Implement Zero Trust strategy with a five-step approach that takes you from identifying critical elements to protect to architecture to maintenance.
The five-step approach to a Zero Trust strategy is a logical, clear path to protecting your environment, data, applications, infrastructure, services, and users. The way you apply the strategy depends on what you’re protecting and your business requirements, but the outcomes you’re working toward are similar:
  • Segment the network effectively and efficiently to prevent lateral movement.
  • Protect business-critical data and infrastructure from unauthorized applications and users.
  • Protect business-critical applications from unauthorized access and usage.
  • Enforce consistent security policy seamlessly across your enterprise—networks, clouds, and endpoints—to simplify management and provide the same level of access and security to users across all use cases.
The five-step approach works across your entire enterprise, whether you’re implementing a Zero Trust strategy in the cloud, on a private network, or on endpoints.
