A Secure Enterprise Starts with Zero

The traditional security approach (known as a castle-and-moat architecture) relied on perimeter defense (the moat) to secure the organization (the castle) from outside attacks. Perimeter defenses protected the network and assumed that everything operating within the network and the four walls of the data center was safe and could be trusted. The world has changed: It’s a cloud-first world: Business happens in the cloud, making it—not the data center—the new center of gravity for the business. Application modernization in the cloud is well underway and SaaS usage continues to grow. So, how can companies protect their business in the cloud if it’s not within the castle and protected by the moat?
