Conventional network segmentation focuses on network performance and management. Micro-segmentation, in contrast, addresses critical issues related to security and business agility, protecting applications at a more granular level. It is a new and powerful approach to reducing risk and adapting security to dynamic IT environments.
With micro-segmentation, security becomes more dynamic, scalable, and consistent inside and across cloud and data center environments. This e-book explains the core concepts of micro-segmentation, describes the most common use cases, and provides practical advice on how to roll out micro-segmentation in a complex organization.
