'Zero Trust': An Outdated Model?Cyjax CISO Ian Thornton-Trump Offers a Critique
The zero trust model is outdated in today's cloud environment, says Ian Thornton-Trump, CISO at Cyjax, a threat intelligence company, who recommends the use of segmentation and monitoring for anomalous behavior instead.
"Zero trust is not aligned to the agility and the ability to collaborate" that businesses want today, he says. "It's a dated artifact of the past."
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Thornton-Trump discusses:
- Why he believes the zero trust model is now a “flawed” concept;
- Alternatives to the model;
- Why zero trust architecture is an out-of-date concept.
As CISO at Cyjax, Thornton-Trump performs real-time analysis of immediate threats and keeps abreast of developing security threats. Previously, he was CTO at Octopi Managed Services.
