How to Avoid the Most Common Micro-segmentation Mistakes
It’s possible to protect critical infrastructure without compromising security or your budget — find out how.
The Need for Micro-segmentation
Industry experts and organizations such as NIST, PCI, and the U.S. Department of Defense are all in agreement concerning the benefits of micro-segmentation, and for good reason: With tens of billions of devices connected to the internet already and more being connected every day, security is largely being overlooked, and the network attack surface is growing exponentially.
Micro-segmentation is the only effective means to control and restrict traffic flows to those that are explicitly permitted, thus drastically reducing the network attack surface.
Micro-segmentation the Right Way
Micro-segmentation is the way forward for effective network security, but implementing it can be understandably confusing. As a result, many network administrators end up reporting that their micro-segmentation efforts were too costly or complicated to maintain, or that they failed to provide adequate security.
What they don’t know is that micro-segmentation is actually simpler, more cost-effective, and significantly more secure if it’s done the right way.
In “Five Common Micro-segmentation Mistakes and How to Avoid Them,” we explain the five biggest errors people make when implementing micro-segmentation. Download the white paper to learn what these errors are and how to avoid them — and build a better and more secure network for your organization.
