  • Prevent breaches and lateral movements with greater visibility and microsegmentation

Cisco Tetration was designed with network performance and analytics as its primary use case, therefore it lacks deep security capabilities like L7 blocking and has architectural limitations that prevent it from scaling well.
Guardicore Centra Security Platform™ delivers applications visibility, Micro segmentation, Threat detection and Incident response for multi cloud and hybrid cloud data center environments. Guardicore Centra offers full coverage of all traffic inside data centers and scales to very large network sizes and traffic rates, with low impact on hypervisor/server performance.

Guardicore Centra is the only security solution on the market today that provides a single, scalable platform that covers five critical capabilities for effective data center security and protection: flow visualization, microsegmentation, breach detection, automated analysis and response.

Guardicore Centra’s Advantages over Cisco Tetration

SIMPLER & MORE POWERFUL USER EXPERIENCE

Guardicore is simpler and less error-prone to deploy and offers task-focused workflows with fewer manual steps than Tetration.

NATIVE ENFORCEMENT THAT EXTENDS TO LAYER 7

Guardicore Centra’s native host enforcement capabilities are more sophisticated than Tetration’s reliance on built-in OS firewalls and include ability of block on Layer 7.

MORE GRANULAR SEGMENTATION

Guardicore Centra extends microsegmentation to monitoring and enforcement at the process level on both Windows and Linux and supports emerging deployment models like containers.

RICHER VISIBILITY & VISUALIZATION

Guardicore Centra builds and displays an end-to-end map of the complete customer environment, while Tetration’s view is limited to two nodes away from each host.

MORE FLEXIBLE & SCALABLE POLICIES

Tetration offers baseline whitelist policies, but Guardicore also offers blacklist and hybrid approaches, along with additional features to make policies easier to manage at scale.

INTEGRATED THREAT DETECTION CAPABILITIES

Threat detection is an integral component of the Guardicore Centra platform, while Tetration does not offer any capabilities in this area.
