Forrester: Introducing The Zero Trust Edge Model for Security and Network Services
The Zero Trust Security Playbook
Distributed teams. Remote workers. Hybrid workspaces. Cloud migration and adoption. Increasingly sophisticated cyberthreats. It’s never been more challenging to protect and secure the modern workplace. Security and networking leaders need an updated framework to ensure safe, reliable access from anywhere.
A successful security and networking evolution calls for an alternative to traditional data center-oriented security. Shifting to an approach that converges networking capabilities with cloud-native security functions can streamline and strengthen security and network access; Forrester calls this approach the Zero Trust edge (ZTE).
With growing use cases for remote workers, onsite networks, and the Internet of Things, ZTE is the future state of cybersecurity; it can also be the foundation to keeping your organization secure and resilient here and now.
With this report, you can:
- Understand how combining security and networking functions can cut complexity, reduce risk, and improve performance
- Learn how to overcome obstacles on the road to implementing a Zero Trust edge framework
- Start building near-term and long-term strategies for using a ZTE approach to create a modern, cloud-based security framework
