Microsegmentation: A Better Way to Protect Application Workloads & Secure Data
Thursday, November 30, 2017
1:00 p.m. EST / 10:00 a.m. PST
Microsegmentation allows IT and developers a way to decouple security policies from the restraints of physical hardware. By embedding security policies directly into the virtualization layer -- within the hypervisor itself -- microsegmentation offers a much more efficient and practical way to secure workloads. Many enterprise applications still run on legacy machines and non-virtualized bare-metal servers, and sometimes contain the most sensitive data a company can have. Keeping these apps more segregated by limiting the amount of traffic traveling between apps can ensure that someone snooping on a network cannot access the data of an enterprise's most important legacy application. Ideally, customers want a single unified policy and enforcement mechanism that is extensible and portable, for their entire compute estate running on legacy systems, bare-metal servers, virtualized hosts and cloud workloads. Microsegmentation allows customers to achieve this goal and eliminates many of the most vulnerable spots in the application chain.
