Zero-Trust Network Access (ZTNA) implies a security posture where no individual user or device is considered trusted and scrutinized through identity and access management security protocols. Where the traditional security postures considered users and devices within an organization’s physical perimeter to be secure, ZTNA disallows that belief to combat security issues associated with insiders’ threat, remote access, BYOD, and much more. The ZTNA practice has proven to be an effective security measure for organizations to manage secure information access and handle all types of workloads. The tenet of ZTNA is to solve the inherent issues that arise by the unconditional trust placed in the network. Security experts believe the zenith of ZTNA implementation is to render physical security of the transport layer as something that could possibly be disregarded. The current webinar aims to discuss how ZTNA will help organizations solve emerging security issues along with its functioning and implementation.

How will ZTNA help organizations benefit?
