Long gone are the days of the physical perimeter, where a company’s IT infrastructure was entirely on-site. Today’s increasingly decentralized enterprises depend on a workforce that operates both at home and on mobile devices, working together with the help of cloud-based services. Yet the death of the traditional perimeter does not mean the end of security architecture. Instead, we need to recognize that it is all about trust.
As little as a decade ago, most organizations assumed that their security protection was robust, and few had deployed security operations centers or other cyber monitoring solutions. The concept of “zero trust” was a useful spur to action: work on the assumption that any of your resources might be compromised and put monitoring solutions in place so that you can take remedial action if you find something is amiss.
