Solution Assessment Strategies for the Progressive Security Leader
It's too difficult to choose an enterprise cybersecurity solution. Enterprise CISOs must contend with competing strategies, philosophies, architectures, stakeholders, and service models.
Environments grow more complex. What was once a tangible network perimeter now encompasses work performed remotely, on the open internet, in the data center, or in the cloud. Meanwhile, barbarians assemble at the castle gate. Cyberthreats grow more sinister, more sophisticated, and more frequent, and business risk rises accordingly. A host of competing vendors shout hyperbole about the “one” Zero Trust solution needed to protect the enterprise.

This report aims to translate cloud ZTA cybersecurity assessment priorities into business context. As they evaluate proposed cloud ZTA solutions, enterprise CISOs looking to shift security to the cloud must take into consideration 12 key business factors:
- Security - Coverage depth, coverage breadth, threat measurability, update velocity
- Platform - Edge POPs
- Operations - Visibility, complexity, performance, governance, integration, transformation
- Financial - Price
