Zero Trust has quickly emerged as a foundational concept of cybersecurity that guides the way many organizations approach network, device, and user security. The idea emerged as a response to the failures of the old “crunchy on the outside, soft and gooey on the inside” approach to perimeter security. In the old model, the boundary between the inside and outside of an organization was heavily secured, but on the inside, assets and traffic were presumed to be safe and trusted. This became a liability when attackers breach a perimeter and have free rein to throughout the victim's network and cause virtually unlimited damage.

Zero Trust offers a new approach that aims to stamp out the presumption of security and replace it with a mantra of “never trust, always verify.” No devices or connections are to be implicitly trusted. Instead of one-time access decisions, security is to be addressed dynamically and continuously in a way that adapts to observed changes in the environment. But how does Zero Trust extend to unmanaged, IoT, and IoMT devices?
