The Future of Zero Trust: Continuous Authentication

Security Boulevard

Rich Smith

Ask any CISO about a trend that they think will help push security postures forward and you’ll inevitably hear the same thing: the elimination of the perimeter and the rise of the zero trust mindset. In the old perimeter model, users were typically only authenticated once to access the network, while with many zero trust approaches users are much more frequently authenticated. However, this creates a clear challenge of “usability vs. security” that every CISO is all too aware of: using short enough session times to reduce risk while at the same time not causing too much user friction by asking them to log in constantly. What if we could do away with that friction entirely and provide continuous authentication of users by bringing together two different technologies?
