Guardicore Centra Security Platform

The fastest way to visualize and segment your assets in the data center, cloud, or hybrid cloud infrastructure.
“The real bonus is the fact that we can secure applications, all the way down to the individual services, on each host. It's actually more granular security than we can get out of a traditional firewall."
Joshua Turner
Manager Network & Security Engineering, Teleflora
