Zero Trust

Secure your enterprise with Zero Trust data protection.

Having multiple storage environments for your enterprise data is a reality of the modern work environment, but agility shouldn’t come at the cost of security. Myota makes it easy to implement Zero Trust data protection to safeguard your company from external and internal threats.

What is a Zero Trust security model?

A Zero Trust security model assumes a cybersecurity breach is inevitable. The principles of Zero Trust focus on verifying every user, device, and application and granting the lower level of data access necessary for each individual to do their jobs.  

Never Trust, Always Verify

Authenticate each user, device, application and data flow.  Authenticate and explicitly authorize each to least privilege required using dynamic security policies.

Assume Breach

Deny by default. Enterprises should monitor, inspect and log all activity — including network traffic and requests for access to data — to detect suspicious activity.

Verify Explicitly

Grant the least amount of access each user, device or application needs to perform essential work. Use multiple attributes to determine who should have access to what resources.

Protect Critical Assets in Real Time

As the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) puts it, Zero Trust cybersecurity moves defenses away from “static, network-based perimeters to focus on users, assets and resources.”

According to a guidance document by the National Security Agency, Zero Trust “embeds comprehensive security monitoring; granular risk-based access controls; and system security automation in a coordinated manner throughout all aspects of the infrastructure to focus on protecting critical assets (data) in real time with a dynamic threat environment.”

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 Engine

This is the component that makes the decision to grant or deny access to a resource, using input from external sources and a trust algorithm. 

Policy Administrator

The policy administrator establishes or shuts down communication between a user and a resource, using commands to policy enforcement points. It generates one-time authentication (such as a code) to grant access or shuts down the connection to deny access.

Policy Enforcement Point

This is the system that manages connections between users and enterprise data. It’s a single component that may be broken into two components — for instance, there may be controls on the device and in front of the resource.

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.

How does Myota help you implement
Zero Trust data protection?

Myota’s Converged Data Security platform combines the tenets of Zero Trust architecture, data encryption, immutable redundant storage and advanced data dispersion. Myota is designed for consumption and scale allowing fine-grain control over security, storage and data governance.

Overcome Security Obstacles

The Myota platform creates a data security backplane that consist of pooled storage nodes that allows us to apply multiple security and IT resiliency capabilities within a single solution.

Zero Trust Architecture

Myota combines user and device access controls with unique data micro-segmentation technology to enable organizations to overcome external and insider threats.

Data Encryption

Myota’s unique data micro-segmentation methodology goes beyond standard encryption to render files unusable to malicious attackers

Advanced Data Dispersion

Myota leverages individually encrypted data shards, data micro-segmentation, and multiplexed data storage to guard against information loss.

Redundant Storage

Myota reduces organizational reliance upon traditional backup storage solutions and retention of redundant copies of files. Seamless restoration and disaster recovery improves RTO capabilities.
