Empower your users to work more securely anywhere and anytime, on any device.
Support your employees working remotely by providing more secure access to corporate resources through continuous assessment and intent-based policies.
We are committed to helping to build a safer world for all, and we believe Zero Trust is the foundation for security. New capabilities announced at Ignite will help you tackle risk from all angles so you can protect everything.
Today’s organizations need a new security model that more effectively adapts to the complexity of the modern environment, embraces the mobile workforce, and protects people, devices, apps, and data wherever they’re located.
Instead of assuming everything behind the corporate firewall is safe, the Zero Trust model assumes breach and verifies each request as though it originates from an open network. Regardless of where the request originates or what resource it accesses, Zero Trust teaches us to “never trust, always verify.” Every access request is fully authenticated, authorized, and encrypted before granting access. Microsegmentation and least privileged access principles are applied to minimize lateral movement. Rich intelligence and analytics are utilized to detect and respond to anomalies in real time.
Assess your Zero Trust maturity stage to determine where your organization is and how to move to the next stage.
Verify and secure each identity with strong authentication across your entire digital estate.
Gain visibility into devices accessing the network. Ensure compliance and health status before granting access.
Discover shadow IT, ensure appropriate in-app permissions, gate access based on real-time analytics, and monitor and control user actions.
Move from perimeter-based data protection to data-driven protection. Use intelligence to classify and label data. Encrypt and restrict access based on organizational policies.
Use telemetry to detect attacks and anomalies, automatically block and flag risky behavior, and employ least privilege access principles.
Ensure devices and users aren’t trusted just because they’re on an internal network. Encrypt all internal communications, limit access by policy, and employ microsegmentation and real-time threat detection.
A simplified diagram of Zero Trust security with a security policy enforcement engine at its core providing real-time policy evaluation. The engine delivers protection by analyzing signals and applying organization policy and threat intelligence. It ensures identities are verified and authenticated, and devices are safe, before granting access to data, apps, infrastructure, and networks. In addition, visibility and analytics, along with automation, are applied continuously and comprehensively.
Guidance on implementing Zero Trust principles across identities, endpoints, data, applications, networks, and infrastructure.

In a Zero Trust model, users and devices, both inside and outside the corporate network, are deemed untrustworthy. Access is granted based on a dynamic evaluation of the risk associated with each request. Learn more about enabling Zero Trust security.
Microsoft deployed Zero Trust to secure corporate and customer data. The implementation centered on strong user identity, device health verification, validation of application health, and secure, least-privilege access to corporate resources and services.
