Shadow IT refers to an organization's department or person using any hardware, software, or cloud service not known or approved by the IT department. In the past, adopting a "zero trust" approach was straightforward. The software was solely bought off the shelf. Nowadays, cloud services and software are available at the click of a button, making it nearly impossible for IT departments to keep track.
