As envisioned by NIST (SP 800-207), Zero Trust security models eliminate persistent trust and enforce continuous authentication, least privilege, and adaptive access control. This strategy also applies segmentation and micro-segmentation for secure access. A zero-trust approach is about constant visibility into who is doing what on your network.

But choosing the right technologies to incorporate into your security mesh can feel a little like choosing a team to play a baseball game without anyone playing together before.
