Best practices in network access stipulate a zero-trust access (ZTA) approach. CISOs looking to implement ZTA will find numerous technologies designed to meet the requirements of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Zero Trust Architecture. It can be a challenge, however, to get all these technologies to work together to prevent security lapses.
Fortinet has found that the most effective ZTA strategy is a holistic approach that delivers visibility and control of all users and devices both on and off the network. The zero-trust model of network security reduces the attack surface while providing secure access to applications and dynamic access control.
