The Zero Trust eXtended Ecosystem

Extending Zero Trust Security Across Your Digital Business.

Analyst: Chase Cunningham | Published: January 19, 2018

Forrester’s Zero Trust Model of information security is a conceptual and architectural model for how security teams should redesign networks into secure micro-perimeters, strengthen data security using obfuscation techniques, limit the risks associated with excessive user privileges and access, and dramatically improve security detection and response with analytics and automation.

In this report, analyst Chase Cunningham, provides guidelines for robust security that embraces people, workloads, networks and devices. It is designed to help security teams understand the methods and technologies for their Zero Trust initiatives, including:

  • Should technology drive strategy or vice versa?
  • Platforms that serve Zero Trust
  • The necessity of APIs for Zero Trust
  • How to map features, technologies and capabilities to a Zero Trust strategy

This report singles out FireMon as the only Network Security Policy Management (NSPM) solution with the capabilities of a platform in the Zero Trust eXtended (ZTX) Ecosystem. This was in part because of our extensive APIs and far-reaching technology integrations -- as well as our ability to provide a central point (single console) of visibility, analysis, policy and automation.
