MS Partner blogpost: Securing the channel - journey to zero trust

In the compliance world, increased focus on cybersecurity applies across industries and organizations.  Many businesses are evaluating their security posture to ensure they are protected against threats such as ransomware, malware, and phishing. We now find ourselves with the urgent opportunity to adopt a Zero Trust approach to security and assume all activity, even by trusted users, could be an attempted breach.

A Zero Trust approach follows three principles: 

  • Verify explicitly
  • Use least privileged access
  • Assume breach

This is a model that effectively adapts to the complexity of the modern environment, embraces the hybrid workplace, and protects people, devices, apps and data wherever they’re located.  

In addition, Microsoft will release a technical preview for granular delegated administration privileges (GDAP) so that partners can test the new capabilities and begin planning their transition from DAP to GDAP.  This will allow a higher degree of control over customers’ access through the features outlined here.
