Embracing Shadow IT - No More Zero Trust

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.
