Zero Trust Needs Visibility

“Visibility is the key to defending any valuable asset. You can't protect the invisible.”1 
- Forrester Research

Why Zero Trust?

Zero Trust:

  • Offers you a strategy for understanding and managing implicit trust in your modern computing environment
  • Provides a framework to address complexity introduced by digital transformation
  • Enables you to put controls and monitoring in place to decrease implicit trust and reduce risk

But first you must know which devices, identities, applications and data exist in your environment. Your journey starts with network visibility.

Discover expert insight on visibility, the Zero Trust framework and its impact on DoD cybersecurity.

Your Journey Starts with Network Visibility

But first you must know which devices, identities, applications and data exist in your environment. For example, more and more traffic is encrypted, which is traffic you can’t see. If you can’t see it, you have no way of knowing if threats are lurking within it. That’s why, as a Zero Trust best practice, we recommend centralized SSL/TLS decryption to eliminate the network blind spot. (Get more Zero Trust best practices here.)

Also Include Rapid Threat Detection

The success of your Zero Trust journey also depends upon access to network data to detect, investigate and respond to threats in real time. Get those capabilities with Gigamon ThreatINSIGHT, the only cloud-native, high-velocity network detection and response solution built by incident responders, on a common visibility architecture.


“Zero Trust gives you unprecedented visibility into your digital business, from network packets to applications. Visibility, detection and prevention work together to secure your firm's most sensitive and valuable data assets.”1
