Every time a device or user connects to your network and is automatically trusted, your organization's applications and data are at risk. The traditional perimeter-based approach to security in which everything inside the network is trusted and everything else is not trusted is no longer effective. Organizations need to shiift to a zero-trust access strategy, based on the principle of "never trust, always verify", to ensure they know every device and user that accesses the network and how to protect their assets on and off the network.
- Understand the basics of zero trust
- Know and control who connects to your network
- Know and control what connects to your network
- Enforce role-based least-privilege access
- Secure endpoints, networks, and clouds
Zero Trust Access
It’s no longer safe to assume that just because a device is connected to the network, it should have access to everything. Fortinet Zero Trust Access continually verifies who and what is using your resources. IoT and endpoint devices are identified and secured, while IT teams gain full visibility into and control over what’s connected to your network.
Universal Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA)
ZTNA is a capability within Zero Trust Access (ZTA) that controls access to applications. It extends the principles of ZTA to verify users and devices before every application session. ZTNA confirms that they meet the organization’s policy to access that application.
