Security professionals ‘lack confidence’ to apply Zero Trust regimes

2020 Zero Trust Progress report from Pulse Secure finds Zero Trust adoption poses challenges for many organisations.

As many organisations plan to implement Zero Trust capabilities in 2020 to mitigate an escalation in cyber risk, according to a survey 47% of cyber security professionals lack confidence when applying a Zero Trust model to their secure access architecture.

The 2020 Zero Trust Progress report from solutions vendor Pulse Secure, with Cybersecurity Insiders, polled more than 400 cyber security decision-makers to discover how enterprises are implementing Zero Trust security in their organisations. It found nearly equal confidence and lack of confidence in the application of Zero Trust models: 53% of respondents are confident, 47% are not confident.

Of the organisations surveyed that are building-out Zero Trust capabilities over the next 12 month, data protection, trust earned through entity verification, and continuous authentication and authorisation were cited as the ‘most compelling’ tenets of Zero Trust.
