Within a day of each other, the consulting and outsourcing firms Deloitte and HCL Technologies have both launched new managed cyber security services, as consultants look to capitalise on the growing appetite for the zero trust security model.

Deloitte launches Zero Trust Access

Deloitte’s Zero Trust Access provides device-level security for enterprise data and enforces least privilege policies through dynamic access control to enterprise assets. It is cloud-native by design and aims to secure communications between users, devices, and enterprise applications.
