Micro-segmentation is an emerging security best practice that offers a number of advantages over more established approaches like network segmentation and application segmentation. The added granularity that micro-segmentation offers is essential at a time when many organizations are adopting cloud services and new deployment options like containers that make traditional perimeter security less relevant.
The best way for organizations to get started with micro-segmentation is to identify the methods that best align with their security and policy objectives, start with focused policies, and gradually layer additional micro-segmentation techniques over time through step-by-step iteration.
One of the major benefits of micro-segmentation is that it provides shared visibility into the assets and activities in an environment without slowing development and innovation. Implementing micro-segmentation greatly reduces the attack surface in environments with a diverse set of deployment models and a high rate of change.
