This sudden shift to work-from-home models has spotlighted the importance of taking a Zero Trust approach. However, many organizations have met these initiatives with confusion, not knowing what these projects entail, where to begin, and most importantly, what technology can help provide fast, reliable, and secure access to the anywhere workforce of today.
