Asked why zero trust is seen as a promising method of threat prevention, 52% pointed to greater proactivity across all sectors of the company in this security model as one of the top reasons. As for system implementation, 42% of respondents stated that the crucial first step is using the identity and access management (IAM) approach.

"Research conducted by Dr. Cunningham demonstrates that despite possible budget constraints and some technical difficulties such as applying a modern security mindset to the existing ecosystem with legacy infrastructure, most organizations see Zero Trust as a necessary strategy" , observes Marcos Tabajara, sales director at Appgate do Brasil.

Implementation difficulties

Finally, respondents were asked about the difficulties of implementing zero trust in companies. For 30%, in the technical part, the application of the method and the management of policies related to security in dynamic environments are the most significant points.

As for the speed of implementation, 28% believe that budget constraints are the main reason that can lead to delaying the migration process to this model.

“Studies like this show that if you adopt zero trust, there will be business benefits, such as cost savings, among other advantages. We also need to be realistic with people and at least make them aware that change is never easy. However, this is a binary situation: either you adapt, change and survive, or you just pray while you wait – and so far, praying and waiting have not proven to be a good survival strategy," concludes Dr. Cunningham.
