When applying the granularity of privileged access management (PAM), including secure remote access, a zero trust approach ensures all access is appropriate, managed, and documented. Regardless of how the perimeter has been redefined.

Zero trust is more than a trendy buzzword.
Zero trust security models advocate for zones and segmentation to control sensitive IT resources. To achieve this, technology that monitors and manages data and authentication between zones must be deployed. Coverage must include users, applications, context, attribution, and other resources and parameters.
The U.S. Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) defines zero trust architecture in their 800-207 publication. The NIST zero trust model focuses on protecting network resources rather than network segments. This narrows network defenses to focus on individuals or groups of resources. This is in direct response to the growth of remote users and cloud-based enterprise assets.
Remote users, dissolving network perimeters, and cloud-based assets are all drivers of zero trust strategies. Together, zero trust and secure remote access tools solve most remote worker and remote session challenges for both on-site and out-of-office workers. However, there are important considerations to make before migrating to this security model outright.
Inside, learn about the key considerations of a zero trust model:
