Zero Trust Data Security

Despite massive investments in perimeter, endpoint and application-layer security, data breaches are at all-time highs. Today’s hybrid workplace requires a new approach to data loss prevention to close gaps from work-from-home (WFH) and using personal devices (BYOD), and address the increasing risk posed by insider threats and third-party collaboration.

Implementing a zero trust approach for data security is the new way forward. One that extends beyond just managing access to data but to control how you use the data. An approach that uses continuous monitoring to make dynamic, explicit decisions each time a user accesses sensitive files.

Fasoo Zero Trust Data Security operationalizes these principles with three key capabilities that provide the ultimate in sensitive data control and visibility.

How Zero Trust Data Security Benefits You

File Encryption

Control Over Data-In-Use

Universal File Visibility

File Encryption

Most approaches to data loss prevention monitor, but do not actually protect the data itself. True Zero Trust data security should ensure any exfiltration of sensitive information is safe from misuse.

File encryption is core to Fasoo’s zero trust approach.

With Fasoo, a file with sensitive data without exception is automatically encrypted per corporate policies when created or modified, all transparent to the user. User errors are eliminated, workflows are uninterrupted, and corporate policies are consistently applied across the entire data inventory.

Control Over Data-In-Use

Once a verified user gains access to the file, it’s a free pass with use of corporate sensitive data. Forward, cut and paste, copy, print, and screen capture are examples of the many ways insiders can maliciously or unintentionally expose sensitive information to unauthorized parties.

True zero trust requires control over data usage as well as access.

Fasoo enables a comprehensive set of file permissions such as these to control what authorized users can and can’t do with a document in use. With its industry leading enterprise digital rights management capability, users are granted explicit usage rights specific to each file containing sensitive data.

Universal File Visibility

The ability to continuously monitor data activities so you can make explicit decisions each time someone tries to access sensitive files is central to a Zero Trust approach. However, traditional security and network tools create a patchwork approach to data visibility and with today’s hybrid environments visibility as to who accessed data and how they used it is lost.

Fasoo provides the deepest and persistent visibility into data usage with its embedded ID technology.

A unique ID embedded in each file logs every access and what was done with the file. It provides context about user behavior, device identity, time of day and geolocation to provide the adaptive, explicit decisions for a true zero-trust approach.
