Decoupling Security from the Network: The Evolution of Segmentation

Decoupling Security from the Network: The Evolution of Segmentation

Published by: Research Desk Released: Oct 16, 2019

Enterprises are increasingly being asked to improve security protection while simultaneously maintaining business and network performance. To address this, host-based segmentation is increasing in adoption.

The goal of this whitepaper is:

  •     Explain the evolution of networks, SDN and host-based “security segmentation”.
  •     Describe core competencies and trade-offs of traditional segmentation vs. host-based segmentation.
  •     Build a case for decoupling security from the network based on design logic and efficacy.
