Zero Trust is an evolution of a range of past security architectural approaches and concepts; think network segmentation, least privilege, and defense. The key difference being Zero Trust brings a different mindset to how we design and build security to support the idea of starting with no implicit trust and that we assume a breach has already occurred.

The Department of Defense (DOD) released a publication in the Spring of 2021 on Zero Trust Architecture that underscores the importance of basing next-generation cybersecurity strategies on Zero Trust principles. More and more national and international agencies around the world are moving away from a legacy emphasis on perimeter protection and beginning to take steps toward a Zero Trust model. In May 2021, the White House also announced a new Executive Order focused on protecting the nation’s cybersecurity and requiring, amongst other areas of focus, the head of each agency to provide updates on their plans to implement Zero Trust Architecture within 60 days of issuance of the EO.
