Global Survey Results 2020 – Barriers to Adoption of Zero Trust

The best way to protect your organization and its critical assets is to trust no one. That’s why Zero Trust is such a hot topic. We wanted to find out how the last 12 months has impacted priorities and the organization’s confidence in their IAM and privileged access programs, to interpret how that might be a challenge in adopting a Zero Trust model. We commissioned Dimensional Research to survey IT security professional from around the globe.
