Server virtualization, the rise of the hypervisor and the emergence of the software-defined data center have birthed a new concept in security: micro segmentation. The days of a strong perimeter at the edge of the data center protecting trusted data and applications on the inside are over. Data center architects are using virtualization to create small trusted zones with their own security policies and enforcement. Building these micro segments and layering the proper security mechanisms on top of them requires fast, flexible and comprehensive visibility into traffic. This webinar describes how secure micro segmentation works and investigates the role of visibility in creating strong security solutions in the data center.
Who Should Attend
Service providers, data center operators and vendors interested in learning more about micro segmentation and its impact on security, the media and financial analysts.
Everyone who registers for this webinar will receive a special report by Research Director Jeff Wilson. A download link will be sent to you and the report will also be available to download from the live webinar console.
