Zero Trust is a security concept centered on the fact that organizations should not automatically trust anything outside or inside its perimeters - and instead must verify everything trying to connect to its systems prior to granting access. This extra layer of protection has been established to prevent data breaches.
Zero trust security follows two key concepts: Never trust machines or users automatically, and least-privilege access. In short, one should not automatically trust machines or users. Users should only be given the limited access that they need in order to minimize each user's exposure to sensitive parts of the network.
