Network segmentation is a key defense-in-depth strategy for enterprises today. It segregates and protects key company data and limits attackers’ lateral movements across the corporate network. It is also effective in reducing the scope of audits for regulations such as PCI-DSS. But managing the firewall rules that enforce your network segmentation is challenging – and the more segments you have the more firewalls you need to deploy and manage. This inherent trade-off between security and complexity often results in under-segmented networks, which are not as secure as they should be.
