What motivates organizations to initiate or build out a Zero Trust program? Data security tops the list with 85 percent, followed by breach prevention (70%) and reduction of threats to endpoints (56%). Beyond industry, regulatory and internal compliance, nearly a third are seeking to address hybrid IT security issues.
Nearly 29% of organizations have a zero-trust model already in place or projects underway, while 43% are in some sort of planning stage. Nearly a third have no plans or are not familiar with zero trust.
Forty percent of organizations expect an increase in their identity/access management-related budgets over the 18-month period between Jan. 2020 and June 2021. Only 15% believe these budgets will see a decline.
