The zero trust security framework is predicated on the concept that eliminating implicit trust of users and devices in your environment can greatly minimize the opportunities for a potential attacker. These same principles can deliver unmatched resilience against breaches as part of your SaaS security approach, but implementing them requires a deep, comprehensive understanding of applications.

In this brief, we’ll break down the tenets of zero trust and better understand what they look like when applied to SaaS security:

  • Identify the principles behind zero trust and how they apply to SaaS
  • Examine the gaps left by existing solutions such as SSO and MFA
  • Detect sophisticated attacks, including token hijacking and OAuth abuse
