According to analyst firm Gartner®, Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) “starts with a default deny posture of zero trust. It grants access based on the identity of the humans and their devices — plus other attributes and context, such as time/date, geolocation, device posture, etc. — and adaptively offers the appropriate trust required at the time. The result is a more resilient environment, with improved flexibility and better monitoring.”
