It’s Time to Rethink Firewalls
Legacy firewalls have proved to be complex, inflexible and just plain ineffective
in today’s dynamic and hybrid environments.
Beyond the Wall
Why are IT and security teams still relying on legacy firewalls to do internal network segmentation?
Guardicore Centra™ gives you a more agile, cost-effective, and secure segmentation solution than legacy firewalls can provide. See for yourself!
The Disadvantages of Legacy Firewalls
As organizations use dynamic cloud and hybrid environments, reliance on legacy firewall appliances for security limits their agility, speed to policy creation and enforcement, and the ability to scale their operations. The need for streamlined and more effective segmentation alternatives to legacy firewalls is urgent.
of all firewall breaches will be caused by security misconfigurations
have less than 50% real-time visibility into network security risks and compliance
don’t even know when a misconfigured firewall causes an issue on the network
Firewalls: The Old Way
Slow & Complex
Rules based on IP address and ports are too coarse and complex
Expanding Attack Surface
More use of cloud and new deployment models like containers
Scaling up high-throughput firewall appliances is expensive
