Defense in Depth vs Zero Trust: Pros and Cons of Two Cybersecurity Approaches

What is Defense in Depth

The Zero Trust Approach


Both defense in depth and zero trust have their advantages and disadvantages. Organizations should carefully consider their specific needs, resources, and risks when choosing a cybersecurity approach. Defense in depth is an established approach that provides a comprehensive defense against a wide range of threats. However, it can be complex and costly to implement. Zero trust is a more proactive approach that reduces the attack surface and limits access to sensitive systems and data. However, it requires a significant shift in mindset, culture, and technology. Ultimately, the best approach is to take a holistic and comprehensive approach to cybersecurity, incorporating both defense in depth and zero trust to provide a layered defense that addresses different types of threats.
