As organizations continually work to create agility and security at scale, many have turned to a Zero Trust framework, which is a “never trust, always verify” security model, to be more secure, promote business continuity, and reduce risk.1 VMware commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate how organizations are working to ensure a strong security posture via Zero Trust. Forrester conducted a survey with 1,475 respondents and five interviews with IT, security, and development managers and above (including CIOs and CISOs) with responsibility for development or security strategy decision-making to explore this topic.KEY RECOMMENDATIONS BASED ON FINDINGS› Recognize Zero Trust is a continual process, not a laurel to rest on.› Involve development teams early in the security strategy process.› Learn to speak the language of development rather than asking development to speak security.
