Never Trust, Always Verify – Is Zero Trust the Next Big Thing in Cybersecurity?

Pages: 63 Published: April 29, 2022 Report Code: GDDT-FT-M012

Zero trust is a strategic approach to secure infrastructure and data that necessitates all users, whether in or outside an organization’s network, to constantly be authenticated, authorized, and validated for security configuration and posture before providing access to applications or data. Zero trust can be achieved both ways, with or without the integration of blockchain technology.

The zero trust future TechSeries report highlights the factors driving and challenging the implementation of zero trust, regulatory scenario, and the future potential of zero trust in the coming years to secure cloud-native applications.

Technology Decoding

In the wake of accelerated digital transformation, traditional perimeter-based security models often fail to protect modern digital environments. Against the backdrop, enterprises explore zero trust as it takes a micro-level approach to authenticate and approve access at every point within a network.

The Road Ahead

Enterprise adoption of zero trust is anticipated to be driven by a growing shift towards hybrid-work models and cloud-centric operations to facilitate end-to-end security and orchestration in a data-driven future. Emerging concepts such as zero trust as-a-service will gain traction soon.

Patent Landscape Analysis

Patenting activity in zero trust sees a boom, notably in the telecom and financial services sectors. The US leads the filings, followed by China and the UK. Alibaba, IBM, and Capital One are the top filers with their research focus on MFA, end end-to-end encryption for efficient security systems.

Media & Trend Analysis

Business leaders bet on zero trust’s potential for transitioning to cloud models and enabling secure access to huge volumes of data from any device, anywhere. Large enterprises gear up to hire mid to senior talent to design and develop industry-specific zero trust platforms.

Investment Radar

Zero trust startups attract venture capital (VC) funding primarily for multifactor authentication (MFA), identity access management, and micro-segmentation. US leads the global VC funding to securely connect authenticated users anywhere, using any device.

Innovation Explorer

Cybersecurity solution providers design innovations on legacy virtual private network (VPN) replacement, domain system security, cloud entity engine, biometric authentication, and AI-powered firewalls to enable their customers to implement zero trust easily and effectively.

Your daily news has saved me a lot of time and keeps me up-to-date with what is happening in the market, I like that you almost always have a link to the source origin. We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.
