Synopsis

Martin PillMaintaining a secure internal network is a significant burden for organisations, which struggle to do this effectively. This is evidenced by the many successful cyber-attacks, and the results of penetration testing, which usually find significant vulnerabilities.

Meanwhile, organisational security perimeters have changed, with the adoption of cloud services and remote working. This begs the question of whether a secure internal network for users is still necessary, especially given the organisational lack of success in achieving it.

In 2010 Forrester coined the term “Zero Trust” with the idea that it’s not the network that should be trusted, but the identities of the devices and persons accessing resources. Around that time, Google began the move to the user and device-centric authentication and authorisation workflow they call BeyondCorp. This allowed the bold move of enabling all internal user applications to be presented over the Internet.

At that time, you would need the resources and expertise of a company like Google to achieve this, but 11 years later much has changed, and it now seems that every vendor is offering a Zero Trust solution.

This presentation will take a canter through the evolution of Zero Trust and examine the state of play as it is today.
