The 10 Hottest Zero-Trust Vendors To Watch In 2021
From scrutinizing users and forsaking VPN to embracing micro-segmentation and authentication throughout the network, here’s a look at 10 zero-trust vendors fighting for the dominant position in this booming market.
Palo Alto Networks
Palo Alto Networks’ approach to zero-trust is oriented around a well-coordinated architecture that validates, authenticates, and applies threat prevention capabilities across a firm’s entire infrastructure. The company said its PAN-OS offerings enable deployment of granular policy enforcement and threat prevention capabilities, including IoT security, regardless of location.
Prisma Access is built upon the requirements of zero-trust network access, authenticating a user at the secure access service edge, provisioning access to privileged resources, and monitoring user behavior once they connect. It shields private applications from public exposure to the internet, provisions user access according to the policies the organization sets, and monitors all authenticated user traffic.
Meanwhile, Palo Alto Networks said Prisma Cloud enables all different aspects of zero trust for public or private clouds across all compute form factors. And as far as the security operations center (SOC) is concerned, Palo Alto Networks said Cortex applies automation and analytics to double check all the trust decisions that have been made previously and enables change in near-real time.
