Zscaler’s Stephen Kovac, Other Cyber Experts: Agencies Need to Adopt Zero Trust

TYSONS CORNER, VA, January 15, 2021 — Stephen Kovac, vice president of global government and compliance at Zscaler (Nasdaq: ZS), and other industry cyber experts have encouraged the implementation of a zero trust approach at government agencies and called for faster adoption of the said security measure following the exploitation of a SolarWind software vulnerability that affected at least eight agencies, ExecutiveBiz reported Monday.

Kovac; Sean Frazier, federal chief security officer at Okta (Nasdaq: OKTA); and Deepen Desai, chief information security officer at Zscaler, have urged organizations to adopt more zero trust approach capabilities, such as secure access service edge, microsegmentation and cloud workload protection, to gain full visibility of their networks.

“They’re kind of operating on the fly,” said Kovac. “They’re buying one solution and thinking they’ve got zero trust now.”
