TechDogs-"Top 5 Zero Trust Security Solutions Of 2022"-I Don't Trust Anyone And Neither Dose This Software
The horror genre reminds us of one of the most iconic and scariest movie franchises on the planet – ‘The Conjuring’. Speaking of The Conjuring and not mentioning the Warrens is a no-no! Ed and Lorraine Warren are a husband-and-wife team who are recognized as the most successful paranormal investigators in history. We believe that Zero Trust Security Solutions are somewhat like the Warrens to your organization. Why and how, you may ask?

You see, the Warrens were experts at helping families guard their homes against supernatural threats. In the same way, Zero Trust Security Solutions offer a new security paradigm that comes with a lot of similar benefits. They are the most effective way to protect your company from cyberattacks and other malicious cyber demons. These solutions also preach that employees should not be granted complete trust and access to company data, systems and networks. Instead, they should assume that any information coming from an external source is malicious until an authorized user in the organization has verified it. #KickOutTheEvil
