How to Define, Simplify and Enforce Network Segmentation and Security Zoning
In this lesson, Prof. Wool presents a simple matrix for defining network segments, and the traffic allowed to and from each zone. This matrix is helpful for assessing firewall chan...
Segmenting your Network for Security
AlgoSec's Cloud Network Security Solution
Unlike hardware-based firewalls, micro-segmentation creates a virtual network that protects your data from harmful attacks and invasive server breaches
Network discovery allows security managers to learn which communications are running in their network, usually software applications. Best practice recommends keeping servers of each application in the same security zone
Micro-segmentation allows greater east-west communication between servers, bypassing perimeter-based security tools and reducing lateral exploration of your data by cyber hackers
Tailor security policies according to the different types of traffic in your servers, controlling the network and application flows flawlessly and easily
Automatically migrates application connectivity and provides a unified security policy through easy-to-use workflows, risk assessment, and security policy management
The Micro-segmentation method offers a high level of virtual firewalling on every host server, providing increased visibility across on-site and cloud environments
Micro-segmentation creates successful security policies without requiring hardware-based firewalls
By using advanced automation, security managers are able to perform maintenance and changes in a Micro-segmented environment without expanding the workforce
The micro-segmented virtual environment helps safeguard the data centers and zones that are your main assets
Software-only Micro-segmentation makes your servers secure without having to install costly replacement and upgraded parts
Using the AlgoSec application allows security managers to identify communications and applications in their network. These applications are taken into consideration when defining the zones
Easily define and adopt new security policies without disrupting business applications and productivity
The Micro-segmentation method tags every security policy rule on your devices and platforms to support a specific business application
Works to allow server access only to those you want to authorize as it blocks unauthorized access such as external hackers and probes
Micro-segmentation implementation smoothly and easily allows visibility and communication between traditional firewalls and host-based firewalls
Hackers and breaches are halted before they can move freely inside the network and steal valuable data
