Zero Trust security, for example, may be a complex endeavor to navigate and disruptive to your MFT operations. But its adoption is really taking hold globally and we think its a journey you might seriously consider embarking on. Let us help. Here are five insightful steps that can help get you on the right path to successful Zero Trust adoption. 

01 Curate and understand the data you want to protect

Before you can secure critical data, you need to have a clear view of what's moving through your system. The better you understand how your business data flows, the easier it will be for you to act. Having additional detection capabilities in place further supports these protective MFT measures.

02 Figure out how you're going to centralize your identity

Every user and every credential should reside in one place. That way, in the event of any malicious activity, it's easier for you to terminate the issue. The place you select to house your centralized identity is where you'll be able to change passwords, keys, and other security settings as situations arise. 

03 Define and implement unique governance models

Every data flow should have its own governance model, with its own visibility parameters and security measures, among other variables. By taking a needs-based approach to data governance, you can prioritize data flows on your Zero Trust security roadmap and focus your efforts in the right place. 

04 Ensure you have the visibility your operations require

What are your admins doing? What are your users doing? You should have enough visibility into your MFT operations to answer these questions. You can then feed this information into an AI or SIEM system to help automate decision-making. You'll save time while gaining a competitive edge. 

05 Rationalize your current and future MFT system plans

While a wide system distribution can be powerful, it can also be more complicated to secure. The more condensed and standardized you can be in your MFT operations, the better off you will be. It becomes easier to draw circles around exposure points and wrap them in the proper security and protocols.
