Is Zero Trust Attainable If You’re Not Google?
Zero Trust as a concept has become almost fashionable, if not perceived to be routine, with the consequence of setting an unrealistic expectation that it is a table-stakes capability for any organization serious about cybersecurity. In part this is driven by the natural erosion of the security perimeter as more users work from anywhere and more applications live in the cloud. Popularized further by Google’s Beyond Corp, CIOs, CTOs and CISOs have begun embracing its tenets and adding it to their strategic initiative roadmaps. We believe all organizations would be wise to pursue Zero Trust, but how practical is it to deploy at scale, at a reasonable speed, if you are not Google i.e., not a major tech giant or a large enterprise with deep pockets, within reach of a convenient pool of highly skilled computer scientists with PhDs, and a near evangelical appetite to invest heavily in this model?
