About Zero Trust Data Security
Zero Trust Data Security follows the NIST principles of Zero Trust for everyone interacting with data. This means operating with the assumption that no one is trustworthy. No user. No application. No device. To meet this standard, data must be natively immutable so that it can never be modified, encrypted, or deleted by ransomware. This means data is ready at all times so you can recover the data you need, and avoid paying a ransom.
