Zero Trust and IT Security – A Global Survey of Security Stakeholders

Zero Trust and IT Security – A Global Survey of Security Stakeholders

There’s been a lot of industry media coverage and general noise made about Zero Trust, but what is the current state of this security model within the IT industry?

To answer this question and more, One Identity recently commissioned a survey of 1,000 IT security professionals. Key questions we hoped to answer included:

  • Is it viewed as a priority?
  • How quickly is it being implemented?
  • What is preventing those who want it to deploy it?


The survey addressed these items and more. Here are a few key findings:

  • 99% of respondents say Zero Trust is important, including 75% who characterize it as “Critically” or “Very” important
  • Just 21% say they are ‘very confident’ in their organization’s understanding of Zero Trust
  • Barriers to adoption include a lack of clarity (32%), other priorities (31%) and lack of resources (29%)
