This IDC Market Perspective assesses the attitudes of European organizations to the adoption of zero trust principles in the architecture of their infrastructure and processes. The European regulatory environment, particularly in terms of data privacy and security, is a significant driver of zero trust adoption. Coupled with the threat landscape, these challenges compel organizations to implement more stringent measures to ensure their networks are not breached or, if they are, that damage is minimized.

"European organizations may lag behind their US counterparts in the adoption of zero trust models; there's nothing like an executive order to give a shot in the arm to security strategy. EU legislators, however, are far from inactive. Data security and governance imperatives, which are a hallmark of the bloc's legislature, mandate a strategy that pays more than just lip service to zero trust. Nevertheless, the zero trust task is not insignificant. European organizations need clear guidance on how to embark upon and drive through their zero trust initiatives, despite sticky legacy infrastructure and processes and complex, sprawling IT and business environments." — Associate Research Director Mark Child, IDC European Security
