For more than 25 years, VPN/IPSec has been the go-to solution of choice for both remote client network access and bulk encryption of critical infrastructure links. However, encrypted VPN is no longer suitable for today's remote clients, modern networks, and virtual infrastructures. Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) solutions are emerging to address the requirements of today's modern remote clients, yet protection of infrastructure network links continue to be implemented with 25-year-old security techniques. Zero Trust security, coupled with high efficiency and performance, are no longer optional requirements for critical network infrastructures and ominous pathways to and within the Data Center. This paper presents a framework for provisioning Zero Trust security to data in motion over these physical and virtual network paths.
- Physical and virtual endpoints coupled with artificial intelligence routing and east-west data flows are creating profound challenges for IT professionals and data owners.
- Data security and data transport must work in concert while each preserving their respective mandates of ownership and efficiency.
- Auditable data security, coupled with unconstrained data transport can be achieved with the provisioning of the proposed zero trust network architecture outlined in this discussion.
