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.

Download this eBook which 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.
