Guardicore Advances Centra Platform to Simplify Micro-Segmentation

Latest Release Adds Flexible Policy Management and Native Enforcement to Streamline Micro-Segmentation Implementations

San Francisco, CA and Tel Aviv, Israel – Guardicore, a leader in cloud and data center security, today announced the next innovations in its Centra Security Platform to simplify microsegmentation deployments. Guardicore Centra is enabling customers to move from zero microsegmentation to native policy enforcement in three easy steps.

Micro-segmentation is gaining traction to create software-defined security zones in clouds and data centers to isolate assets from one another and reduce risk. However, the path to meaningful microsegmentation can be full of challenges, due to incomplete visibility into east-west traffic flows, inflexible policy engines and lack of multi-cloud support,” said Pavel Gurvich, CEO and co-founder of Guardicore. “Guardicore has tackled these microsegmentation challenges head on, and offers an approach and set of capabilities that simplify implementation and ensures success for our customers.”

The Guardicore approach to microsegmentation is based on these three steps, Reveal, Build and Enforce, providing customers with the fastest way to implement microsegmentation policy to secure their critical assets.

  • Reveal – Guardicore Centra features best-in-class visibility that automatically discovers and visualizes all applications and workloads, down to the process level. This visualization, coupled with advanced filtering and grouping capabilities, allows administrators to quickly discover applications and define assets that can share policies.
  • Build – Guardicore simplifies microsegmentation policy management with a Flexible Policy Engine that allows customers to simultaneously design best practice and compliance rules for large segments and establish more granular rules for micro-segments. This includes the ability to set global, high-level macro-segmentation rules, as well as explicit microsegmentation rules within a specific application segment.
  • Enforce – Guardicore adds native enforcement for microsegmentation policy by breaking it down and distributing to the workloads while enforcing on them. Guardicore Centra’s native enforcement includes the application layer (L7) which means that traffic is allowed or blocked not only by its source and destination servers or ports but also by its source and destination processes on Windows and Linux.

Guardicore Centra Security Platform

The Guardicore Centra Security Platform is the only security product on the market that provides a single, scalable platform that covers five critical capabilities for effective security in clouds and data centers: flow visualization, microsegmentation, threat detection, automated analysis and response. Distributed per hypervisor or server, Guardicore Centra secures internal data center traffic and scales to very large network sizes and traffic rates, with low impact on hypervisor/server performance.
