You have now completed the pre-deployment tasks. Now determine your deployment path.

How you deploy File Storage Security depends on your security process.

Security managed by centralized security team

If you want to centralize all scan requests to your AWS account or Azure subscription, from your security team's account or subscription, deploy at least one scanner stack. Then from your individual application team accounts or subscriptions, deploy storage stacks across different regions and report to the scanner stack created by the security team.

Security managed by application teams

If each application team owns its security responsibilities, deploy one scanner stack and many storage stacks across different regions. Alternately, for a simple use case, deploy an all-in-one stack to protect a single bucket or storage account.
