Myota secure data lifecycle management use cases
Myota makes it easy to deploy data protection across storage locations.
How does Myota protect your data
across storage platforms?
An end-to-end multi-cloud secure data lifecycle management approach with Myota makes it easier to secure critical data assets across cloud storage locations.
Myota’s converged data security platform creates a data security backplane that consists of pooled storage nodes, allowing it to apply multiple protections across data types and storage locations.
These protections include:
- Data encryption and dispersion
- The ability to restrict access to data based on identity
- Secure data sharing
- The ability to retain and restore data in the event of loss or theft
These converged capabilities are applied to end-user and server/service environments in two ways:
- As a secured storage and sharing environment in Windows and Mac operating systems via Finder/Explorer
- A data I/O interface for application servers and services accessible today via WebDav with a native API
The Myota console provides administrative control to enable configuration of security/policy parameters at a variety of levels, including storage, devices, users and rights access.
What is a Zero Trust Security Architecutre?
Zero Trust architecture authenticates users and authorizes access each time, rather than granting it based on network location. While technologies and workflows may vary depending on the organization, Zero Trust architecture always includes three main components:
Policy Enforcement Point
What is Zero trust data protection?
Zero Trust data protection requires an understanding of how users, devices and processes interact with data so systems and administrators can make risk-based decisions to grant or deny access. This allows enterprises to detect malicious activity even if user credentials have been compromised or a bad actor gains remote access to a device. It also protects against internal threats. For instance, a bad actor who has access to an organization’s device will still only have limited access to sensitive data.
To implement Zero Trust data protection, enterprises need to identify the locations of sensitive data, determine who needs access to it, and monitor and log all attempts to gain access. Scrutinize every attempt to gain access to data, and explicitly grant or deny access based on your established policies.
Benefits of using Myota for secure data lifecycle management
Leverage a “bring your own storage” configuration
Most enterprises store data in multiple locations, including on servers, on desktops and in the cloud. Myota supports any storage environment, including AWS, Azure and Google.
Avoid vendor lock-in
Myota offers full administrative flexibility and control, as well as easy migration between cloud providers, so you can continue to spin up new environments as you need them.
Minimize data concentration risk
Keeping all or most of your data in a single location not only limits your growth; it also increases the potential for damage in the event of an attack. Myota’s technology is based on the principles of Zero Trust data security and decentralized data risk management.
Improve restore time objectives (RTO)
When your company experiences a ransomware attack or another disaster, every second counts. Myota makes it easy to restore data so you can get back online and back to work faster.
Business continuity and disaster recovery planning
Most companies have business continuity and disaster recovery plans, but those plans rarely include ransomware — a daily threat enterprises can expect to face for years to come.
