Complete Protection Requires Comprehensive Adaptive Protection
Due to the complex and dynamic nature of modern data centers, along with very high traffic rates, data center security architecture must be re-evaluated in order to secure east-west (server-to-server) traffic.
Such traffic now represents over 80 percent of all traffic inside the data center, and organizations face significant challenges in gaining visibility into application communications and putting proper controls in place to meaningfully address security. Attackers require only one success to gain entrance to the entire data center – a breach is typically “game over.”
The concept of Adaptive Security Architecture supersedes the blocking and prevention approach. It offers an entire lifecycle of protective capabilities, including detection and response, within an integrated architecture. Guardicore believes detection and response are essential to security effectiveness. The Guardicore Centra Security Platform leverages state-of-the-art cloud agility and programmability to detect and respond to attacks at an early stage, as they begin lateral movement.
Read this white paper to learn why an effective approach to modern data center security must focus on application-layer visibility, granular micro-segmentation, real-time detection and automated response.
