SolarWinds and other recent cybersecurity events have brought renewed attention on zero trust architectures (ZTAs), and whether ZTAs can be a single solution to current and future threats. Organizations have become dependent on an ever-increasing number of third-party providers who do a greater percentage of overall services. Cybersecurity threat exposure is further complicated by the sage of cloud service providers, remote workers, Internet of Things (IoT) and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). It is recognized that ZTA can be "a solution," but is it "the solution" for cybersecurity challenges of today and tomorrow? Organizations that partially or fully shift to ZTA need to understand the impacts to cybersecurity, and also the impacts to programmatics, organizational structures, financials and missions.
Understand the impact Zero Trust Architectures (ZTAs) have on an organization's cybersecurity posture and related organization changes.
Conduct assessments of the impact of ZTA and other solutions that may be layered to achieve organization cybersecurity goals.
Quantify and prioritize the attributes of ZTA and recognize the problems they address and the common gaps that remain.
