Today’s dynamic data centers require enterprises to shift their attention from intrusion prevention and access management to the workloads and applications themselves.
Security teams need to find ways to reduce the expanding attack surface within data centers, reducing the vulnerability of servers running applications. Traditional authentication techniques such as signature blocking or application whitelisting are too easily subverted by sophisticated attackers.
Micro-segmentation, a key method to protect mission-critical applications and workloads, enables teams to set and enforce strict access and communication policies.
In this guide, you will learn about the benefits of micro-segmentation and how to avoid the pitfalls commonly encountered when implementing micro-segmentation.
