4 Requirements for a Zero Trust Branch

Download the ebook

IT and cybersecurity experts emphasize that one of the primary use cases for Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) is to eliminate or reduce the internet-facing attack surface. Additionally, there has been a 400% year-over-year increase in IoT malware-based attacks since 2022, which poses a substantial threat to organizations.

Traditional branch network architectures rely on implicit trust. This expands the attack surface to the furthest branch location and subsequently allows cyberthreats to move laterally throughout the organization. By adopting a zero trust approach at the branch, enterprises can fortify their networks against threats and streamline connectivity for users, IoT/OT devices, and applications across diverse locations.

Our ebook outlines the four requirements for architecting a zero trust branch:

  • Ensuring zero trust principles for your network
  • Securing IoT/OT devices in your branch locations
  • Supporting direct-to-cloud paths for SaaS/Internet traffic
  • Enabling consistent user experience for in-office and remote employees
