Do you think lobbyists contributed to the emphasis on Zero Trust architecture in Biden’s executive order?

The executive order calls out zero trust a few times in the things they're doing now. While I agree with zero trust architecture, having been in the tech sector for a long time, it suggests to me that the tech players who have big public policy lobbying arms inserted that language to give themselves the ability to market to the federal government. I've just seen the public policy arm of various industries influence the language of policy for their own profit motivations. There could have been a different way to describe it that was benign of the labeling that benefits some people.

Zero trust is a pretty good approach in some environments. I know there's a lot of investment going into solutions to support the zero trust architecture, but I'm not sure I can judge whether that language was inserted by lobbyists.
