Traditional perimeter security solutions monitor north-south traffic (entering and leaving the perimeter) and are designed primarily to detect initial intrusions. They are not engineered to be effectively deployed inside a high-traffic, highly distributed and virtualized data center. Today’s cyberattacks specifically exploit the perimeter-centric defense strategies common in many data centers and target the inside of the data center. IT teams face the daunting challenge of deploying granular security, data compliance and governance controls inside the data center without impacting performance.
Understand the Full Context of Each Application
Centra provides unparalleled flow visualization and automatic discovery of applications and workloads in the data center – down to the process level – so you can easily segment east-west traffic and deploy policies. Using Reveal, a key component of the GuardiCore Centra Security Platform, IT teams can quickly define, monitor and enforce application-aware segmentation policies for non-compliant traffic flows and unauthorized processes.
The GuardiCore Difference
Application-Aware Visibility and Control
GuardiCore provides complete visibility for networks and applications across the entire data center. With Centra, you know exactly which applications are behind each connection and the full context on each process and workflow. Easy query and discovery tools help to quickly identify assets.
Deploy in Five Simple Steps
In just five steps – discover and visualize the data center, label and group assets, define, monitor and enforce policies – IT teams can implement micro-segmentation with confidence.
Monitor for Compliance and Governance Violations
Meet compliance requirements of running applications in the data center. With Centra, IT teams can implement micro-segmentation policies to ensure applications are communicating according to policies and regulations, and get notified whenever applications don’t meet these requirements.
