As enterprises face a greater number of insider threats and a continued erosion of the perimeter, many CISOs have turned to Zero Trust strategies to segment and protect their networks. With the proliferation of security technologies on the market, it can be difficult to pinpoint those that help you best achieve your Zero Trust goals.

Forrester Research's report The Zero Trust eXtended (ZTX) Ecosystem provides guidelines for robust security that embraces people, workloads, networks and devices. Zero Trust brings these players together for the ultimate goal: protect enterprise data. It is designed to help security teams understand the methods and technologies for their Zero Trust initiatives, including:

  • Should technology drive strategy or vice versa?
  • Platforms that serve Zero Trust
  • The necessity of APIs for Zero Trust
  • How to map features, technologies and capabilities to a Zero Trust strategy

The report singled out FireMon as the only Network Security Policy Management (NSPM) solution with the capabilities of a platform in the Zero Trust eXtended (ZTX) Ecosystem, citing in part our extensive APIs and far-reaching technology integrations as well as our ability provide a central point of visibility, analysis, policy and automation. This gives enterprises a single console to enforce a Zero Trust strategy across their global networks.
