The Criticality of Zero Trust for the Federal Government
This IDC Perspective addresses federal requirements for zero trust and presents survey responses from 329 federal agency decision makers. Topics include top reasons for investing in cybersecurity, agency progress in deploying cybersecurity solutions in several areas, and a summary of the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) zero trust security model, Thunderdome.
"We are seeing the shift from relying on perimeter security to more adaptive approaches like zero trust that offer more multifaceted and pervasive defenses," says Adelaide O'Brien, research director, IDC Government Insights.
