FCI Launches Zero-Trust Complete – The First Truly Integrated Solution that Covers the Four Areas of Zero-Trust Cybersecurity


FCI announces the launch of Zero-Trust Complete, the first genuinely Integrated solution that covers the four areas of Zero-Trust Cybersecurity: Software, Users, Endpoints, and Networks.

Brian Edelman, FCI’s Founder and CEO comments, “There’s confusion about the term Zero-Trust. You have some vendors covering one functionality and others covering a different area – this piecemeal approach to Zero-Trust does not work and confuses security professionals. We get calls from companies that experience incidents and breaches as a result of this misunderstanding.”Clarifying the definition of Zero-Trust has become critical with everyone posturing themselves as a Zero-Trust solution.

The simplified version of Zero-Trust is that you trust “no one” and “nothing” until you verify them. FCI’s recent infographic on Zero-Trust outlines that John Kindervag of Forrester originally coined the term back in 2010. Today’s interpretation of Zero Trust is reinforced by Deloitte as they state, “Proper design and engineering of zero trust architectures can result in simple, modular environments and straightforward user access control and management.
