About the Zero Trust security shift

Today, it takes about 200 days for businesses to detect a data breach. But with movement to the cloud, the MFT landscape is spreading. That wider spread naturally makes it harder to detect and resolve data breaches.

Considering these factors, it’s important for businesses to think about how they design and organize their MFT infrastructure. The Zero Trust security model supports these efforts. Designed to provide a strong security posture, the Zero Trust security model operates under the assumption that you can’t trust anyone and users should be granted the most limited access.

With no single solution that exists to deliver Zero Trust security, businesses are often at a loss for how to begin their adoption journey. On one hand, there tends to be a lack of consensus between security and operations teams. At the same time, the maturity of vendors in the MFT space continues to evolve.
