Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA)
What is Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA)?
Zero trust is the newest approach to the cybersecurity challenge of safely connecting users to the resources they need to get the job done. It is a response to the accelerating decentralization of the subjects, assets, and resources of the digital enterprise. Zero Trust enforces authentication and authorization of every user and device on the network, dynamically evaluating policies with as many sources as data as possible.
What role does an Identity Data Fabric play for implementing Zero Trust?
Being a digital enterprise requires safely connecting subjects and resources at the right time, no matter where they are. What’s needed is an Identity Data Fabric that connects the various identity needs across platforms, protocols. Serving the right identity data at the right time is vital for this modern security approach. The ability to register and find the necessary identity data on subjects, assets, and resources is the key to implementing a Zero Trust Architecture.
