Zero Trust path forward to addressing cyber attacks: Cloudflare

66% of organisations are implementing Zero Trust security in their workplaces.

According to a study released by Cloudflare, the Zero Trust security model is what the workforce turns to in lieu of increased cyberattacks and flexible workforces.

The study included 1,000 IT and cyber security decision-makers and influencers across Australia, India, Japan, Malaysia, and Singapore. More than five out of 10, or 54%, of organisations in the Asia Pacific have experienced more security breaches in 2021 than the previous year. 

To combat this, 83% of respondents pointed to changes in their IT security procedures and how essential they were.

86% of organisations are aware of Zero Trust, a security strategy, with 66% implementing this in their workplaces. 58% of those that have not implemented Zero Trust plan to do so sometime in the next 12 months. 

According to Cloudflare, a Zero Trust approach means that organizations do not automatically trust requests to corporate data or resources. Instead, a verification process is put in place for every attempt to connect to corporate systems.

This, however, comes with its own limitations. 67% of respondents point to the lack of internal IT security experts as the main obstacle to the implementation of the system. 

Jonathan Dixon, VP and general manager of Asia Pacific, Japan, and China, Cloudflare, said that this push for greater cybersecurity was due to the need to protect their individual networks, devices, and access to business-critical information.
