Steve Turner November 11, 2021
Time and time again, we’ve heard these two burning questions from so many organizations: “How do we protect ourselves against ransomware?” and “Where do we start?” We’ve all seen the ransomware “research” landscape — littered with top-10 lists, vendor cure-alls (spoiler: don’t depend on one security tool to completely eradicate ransomware), and so many other […]

Zero Trust Doesn’t Mean Zero Breaches

David Holmes June 29, 2021
We occasionally get asked this question: “Would Zero Trust have prevented [insert high-profile breach]?” The breach in question could be Equifax, SolarWinds, or the United States Office of Personnel Management. We haven’t been asked (yet) about the announcement from Microsoft this month, where they acknowledged that they were a target of, and indeed had an […]

Steve Turner February 18, 2021
One of the top challenges and misunderstandings that I continue to see here at Forrester is about what the definition of Zero Trust actually is.
