Zero Trust security is an increasingly important way for organizations to protect their data. As a quick refresher, this method requires device, user and network verification for access to corporate resources — and only the minimum access necessary. In a nutshell, trust is never implicit.
Large enterprises, small businesses and government organizations are all evaluating and implementing Zero Trust. And this investment couldn’t come at a better time. In fact, United States Executive Order 14028 now requires government agencies and their suppliers to set up a Zero Trust architecture. With Android Enterprise, the 94% of organizations currently implementing a Zero Trust architecture can quickly expand it to their mobile devices.
Android’s Zero Trust capabilities
A Zero Trust approach requires analyzing device signals to understand a device’s security posture and the context of the access request. Android provides a wide range of signals that businesses can use to help establish trust. There are currently more than 100 unique device trust signals available across 30 APIs on Android devices.
