What is Zero Trust Architecture in data security?

No person, device, or network is implicitly trusted in a zero-trust architecture. It offers a granular and dynamic approach to data protection, in contrast to the conventional perimeter-based manner.

Before gaining access to any resource or application, the security framework mandates that users and devices authenticate their identities.

For instance, in a multifactor authentication system, access is granted only when the user provides at least two kinds of identity, such as a password and a smart card or fingerprint.

Hackers cannot compromise networks by posing as genuine users because of zero trust architecture. Data breaches are less likely as a result.

Network segmentation, micro-segmentation, and multifactor authentication are all used in zero-trust architecture.

Additionally, it highlights the significance of visibility and monitoring by giving current information on network activities and potential security risks.
