What does it mean for Cybersecurity?
It is worth noting that when a cyber attack takes place, the point at which the malicious actor entered is not usually where their target files or information are. It is often the weakest point. This is the reason why preventing lateral movement and access across the network is so important.
That is also why extensive logging and review is important to detect signs of lateral movements in both traditional and Zero-Trust security model.
However, it is worth noting that ZTA might fare better in this aspect of mitigating lateral movements across the network as every request is evaluated.
