A Zero Trust Model for Your Network

Zero trust architecture is a security solution that requires users and devices to prove their identities — and trustworthiness — before accessing your network. Learn how to implement a zero trust network to improve and strengthen data protection.

Implementing a zero trust network can mean a significant shift in existing infrastructure. CDW's portfolio of partner solutions and 24/7 support can help smoothly roadmap, design and implement a zero trust model for your network. The threat landscape is always evolving. Your security should too.

The path to implementing zero trust requires a Universal Privilege Management (UPM) approach. Privileged access management alone is not enough. UPM creates a frictionless experience for users, allows for just-in-time (JIT) access, enforces least privileged access, removes administrative rights and enables secure remote access. Drastically reduce your attack surface, window of exposure and achieve a zero trust implementation.
