Virtual private networks (VPNs) are part of a traditional, outward-looking approach to security that assumes everything behind the firewall is safe. But this isn’t good enough anymore.

In today’s hybrid workforce environment, large percentages of employees work from home, corporate assets reside in multi-cloud environments, and attackers routinely evade defenses without being detected. All these factors make this model less effective. Organizations require a method that providers a greater security posture. Enter: Zero Trust.

In this blog by Stratascale, an SHI company, we propose the following 5 steps to building an effective security approach with Zero Trust:

1. Identify your sensitive data at rest and in motion

2. Map acceptable routes for sensitive data access and egress

3. Architect Zero Trust microperimeters

4. Monitor the Zero Trust environment, in detail, with security analytics

5. Embrace security automation and adaptive response
