lateral movement micro-segmentation

Lateral Movement Security

While IT security teams often devote significant attention to perimeter protection, east-west traffic is outgrowing north-south traffic in both volume and strategic importance due to changes in data center scaling approaches, new big data analysis needs, and growing use of cloud services with a less defined perimeter. It’s more important than ever for IT security teams to develop their capabilities to prevent lateral movement in these types of environments. Read more about lateral movement security.
what is micro segmentation

What is Micro-Segmentation?

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.
micro segmentation methods

Micro-Segmentation Methods

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.
benefits of micro segmentation

Harness the Benefits of Micro-Segmentation

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.
vlan micro-segmentation

The hidden costs of VLAN segmentation

Using VLANs for segmentation has a nice advantage - it requires no new tools and you can use your existing networking infrastructure. But the reality is that there are hidden costs to this approach which make it expensive (in fact, very expensive). Let's take a look at some of the often unknown costs associated with VLAN segmentation.

Securing the Modern Law Firm

Law firms are increasingly the target of cyber attack. Cyber criminals recognize law firms as vaults of proprietary sensitive corporate data and as such optimal target for cyber security attacks. From the Panama Papers to DLA Piper, 2017 was one of the most challenging cybersecurity years for law firms and there is no indication that this trend is slowing down in 2018.
