ManageEngine: Authentication is the first step to Zero Trust
Are you evaluating the right identities in your Zero Trust approach?
A Zero Trust network architecture (ZTNA), with its around-the-clock vigilance, monitoring, and auditing of user accounts, is widely seen as a viable option to guard a post-COVID hybird workplace. But an important question remains unanswered: is your ZTNA securing the right user accounts?
Authentication forms the basis of every security strategy, so it cannot be overlooked. With hybrid work models becoming the norm, it is imperative for authentication processes to be context-aware and sensitive to all unique user-related cases. Establishing context enables Zero Trust to closely evaluate entities on the basis of the impending risk they bring to a network.
