Forrester Research Inc. first coined the term “zero-trust” in 2010. A decade and a pandemic later, with businesses implementing hybrid multi-Cloud environments, identity and access management can no longer be considered optional. Extending VPN protection is not enough.
Risk-based authentication enhances both security and user experience by allowing you to rank the resources you want to protect based on risk level and type of user.
