HCLTech Zero Trust Model for Secure Access | HCLTech

With exponential increase in the cloud adoption models, enterprise borders have blurred leading to an increase in threat vectors. In a traditional “castle and moat” architecture, enterprises used to control complete access via their own data centers and all the users connecting from anywhere were backhauled through these data centers for the purpose of authentication and enforcing the security policies. However, currently enterprises across the globe need to access applications in hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Traditional network and security architecture thus need to transform to enable cloud, mobility, and work-from-anywhere models. This has led to cloud-delivered zero trust-based security framework, where not only the external users but even internal users are not given access without complete authentication.
