Zero Trust Security - Identity-First Approach

Make identity the foundation for your Zero Trust strategy

Identity-first approach to Zero Trust security

Identity is essential to a Zero Trust strategy. In recent years, we’ve seen the perimeter moving to the identity layer and a rise in identity-based cyber attacks. As a result, people are now the most critical component of the Zero Trust ecosystem.

An identity-first approach to a Zero Trust Security strategy ensures the right people have the right level of access, to the right resources, in the right context, and that access is assessed continuously—all without adding friction for the user. Getting there can be easier said than done, but we're here to help.

Zero Trust Maturity Curve

Because there is no silver bullet when it comes to achieving a Zero Trust security architecture, organisations approach their journeys differently. When it comes to identity, we’ve seen our customers progress through several stages of maturity in order to advance their Zero Trust security strategies. This identity maturity framework can help you take immediate action to help your organisation reach its Zero Trust goals.

Interested in where your organisation falls on this maturity curve? Take our Zero Trust Assessment to get personalised recommendations on how to tackle the Zero Trust journey with identity and secure your organisation.

On the one hand, we want to move to Zero Trust. On the other, we're trying not to bug users too much. It's a balancing act, right? Okta is the only solution that enables us to find the sweet spot. That opens up a world of possibility to build our future with both creative collaboration and peace of mind.
