2020 Zero Trust Report

Published by: Research Desk Released: Jun 15, 2020

Enterprise adoption of the Zero Trust security model is gaining momentum as 72% of organizations plan to assess or implement Zero Trust capabilities in 2020 to mitigate growing cyber risk.

With its principle of the user and device verification before granting conditional access based on least privilege, Zero Trust holds the promise of significantly enhanced usability, data protection, and governance.

The 2020 Zero Trust Report reveals how enterprises are implementing Zero Trust security in their organizations, including key drivers, adoption trends, technologies, investments, and benefits.

To provide this information, we surveyed cybersecurity professionals ranging from technical executives to IT security practitioners, representing a balanced cross-section of organizations of varying sizes across multiple industries.

For almost half (45%) of respondents to the survey, ensuring remote access to private applications hosted in the public cloud was a security priority. Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) was an area of focus for this report, the key findings supporting the view that ZTNA is a way to simplify, scale and secure remote access for a cloud-first organization.
