Deployed at the network layer, segmentation was first developed to improve network performance. But as cybersecurity experts have realized that a “perimeter only” approach to security is not working, it’s become increasingly clear that security segmentation is foundational to data center and cloud security. Organizations looking to secure the interior of their environments often need to be more dynamic and more granular than network segmentation will allow. Security segmentation makes this possible.
In this guide, you’ll learn:
- How security segmentation fits into your security strategy
- What to look for in a security segmentation solution
- Five steps to building a security segmentation strategy
- Real-world examples to help you plan
- How to get started
