No one in today’s highly connected world is exempt from security threats like
phishing, ransomware, or denial-of-service (DoS) attacks. Certainly not Google.
Google operates seven services with more than one billion active users
each (including Google Search, YouTube, Maps, and Gmail). We see every
type of attack, bad software, and bad actors—multiple times a day—and
we’re proud of what our people, processes, and technology do to stop them.
Google has published more than 160 academic research papers on
computer security, privacy, and abuse prevention and has privately warned
other software companies of weaknesses discovered in their systems. Within
Google, we enforce a zero-trust security model, which monitors every device
on the internal network.
A significant paradigm shift occurred in the last few years. Much like other technological shifts of
the last decade — when cloud computing changed the way we do business, agile changed the way
we develop software and Amazon changed the way we shop — Zero Trust presents us with a new
paradigm in how we secure our organizations, our data and our employees.
While difficult to identify the precise tipping point, one thing is certain: what were once
extraordinarily high-profile, damaging breaches are no longer extraordinary. In just the last
18 months, Yahoo, Accenture, HBO, Verizon, Uber, Equifax, Deloitte, the U.S. SEC, the RNC,
the DNC, the OPM, HP, Oracle and a profusion of attacks aimed at the SMB market have all
proven that every organization — public or private — is susceptible.
The epiphany behind the paradigm shift is clear: Widely-accepted security approaches based on
bolstering a trusted network do not work. And they never will. Especially when businesses are
dealing with skill
Unless you’ve already deployed a Zero Trust network, your network security is broken. That’s the bad news. The good news? New ways of implementing a previously hardware-intensive and costly concept called micro-segmentation now put Zero Trust within your organization’s reach. Learn about these breakthrough developments in this Forrester Research report that is yours free, courtesy of VMware and Carahsoft®.

To be fair, if you don’t know or understand the data center architecture strategy called micro-segmentation, you aren’t a “dummy.” But it could mean you are missing a highly cost-effective opportunity to implement best-in-class data center security called the “Zero Trust” network. This special “For Dummies” edition explains micro-segmentation, how it enables Zero Trust, and why it is now within your organization’s reach.

Undoubtedly you are aware of network virtualization, but perhaps you’ve yet to hear a compelling case for it. If the extended network capabilities and simplified management enabled by network virtualization aren’t compelling enough reasons, data center security should be. To manage today’s coordinated and persistent security threats, which often come from within, data centers need to implement “Zero Trust” networking. Virtualization puts it within your reach. Discover why — download this free business case white paper now.
Security breaches targeting government and military data centers are increasing. Attackers have learned to defeat current means of physical network security, which emphasize perimeter defense. Today, organizations must protect the workloads inside the data center, utilizing a concept called micro-segmentation to build a “Zero Trust” network. But that has been unrealistic, requiring too great an investment in hardware, time, and manpower — until now, that is. Download this use case from VMware and Carahsoft® now to learn why.
This webinar, hosted by Palo Alto Networks, focuses on deployment of 'Zero Trust Network Segmentation' in industrial control systems in large scale, mult-plant environments. We begin with an explanation of the concepts behind 'Zero Trust', scalability, the best ways to adapt existing networking and segmentation without needing to reconfigure infrastructure, and how Palo Alto's platform adresses these needs.

There's an old saying in information security: "We want our network to be like an M&M, with a hard crunchy outside and a soft chewy center." For today's digital business, this perimeter-based security model is ineffective against malicious insiders and targeted attacks. Security and risk (S&R) pros must eliminate the soft chewy center and make security ubiquitous throughout the digital business ecosystem — not just at the perimeter. In 2009, we developed a new information security model, called the Zero Trust Model, which has gained widespread acceptance and adoption.
This report explains the vision and key concepts of the model. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
This paper discusses the need for and details of a Zero Trust approach to network security. It also itemizes the essential criteria and capabilities required of a Zero Trust solution, explains how the Palo Alto Networks® next-generation security platform delivers on these requirements, and provides guidance on how to progressively migrate to a Zero Trust design.
The Modern Malware Review presents an analysis of 3 months of malware data derived from more than 1,000 live customer networks using WildFire™ (Palo Alto Networks™ feature for detecting and blocking new and unknown malware). The review focuses on malware samples that were initially undetected by industry-leading antivirus products.
Cybersecurity has become a leading topic both within and beyond the corporate boardroom. This attention is well-founded and marks a transition from information security being a concern primarily for businesses and governments to it being broadly acknowledged as an issue that impacts and requires the attention of everyone, from individual consumers to entire countries.
Without question, your network is more complex than ever before. Your employees are accessing any application they want, using work or personal devices. Often times, these applications span both personal and work related usage, but the business and security risks are often ignored.

"To tackle today’s cyber threats, IT security leaders must rethink traditional security strategies. Email security in particular has become a victim of its own success and requires a radical rethink, having played a key role in several high-profile security breaches.
Today’s threats, like spear-phishing, are designed to bypass traditional Secure Email Gateway defenses, often taking advantage of end users who are considered the weakest link in business email security armor. A zero-trust approach to email security is needed.
This white paper discusses how:
- CISO’s should carefully assess email security as part of a strategic security review
- IT Managers can evaluate the state of current email defenses and take tactical action to strengthen them
- Security Administrators can deliver best-practice defense in depth for email
- Organizations can remove a reliance on trust to more effectively protect information, their network and employees.
In this on-demand webinar, John Kindervag, Senior Analyst at Forrester Research, defines "zero-trust architecture," outlines the 5 steps needed to make this model actionable, and explains how his clients are adopting a "zero-trust architecture."
