Micro-segmentation, also known as distributed firewalling (DFW), is an approach to defining network and security policies that allow organizations to segment and control workloads based on application profiles and workload attributes. Distributed Firewalling is available with our cloud offering through either a self-service portal or as a managed service.
As networks become virtualized and micro-segmentation becomes a strategic advantage for security teams, data inherently becomes segmented into buckets to allow teams greater visibility and control over information on the network. Segmentation can
be used to separate day-to-day business data from the sensitive or proprietary data. From there, security and risk teams can place the proper security and access controls on sensitive data segments using micro-segmentation.
Network admins can more quickly identify and adjust privileges for certain data types through micro-segmentation, enabling:
If organizations understand where data exists, and which users are supposed to have access to it, then:
Network segmentation automatically interweaves connections and services to create micro-perimeters around specific sets of data and information. This:
By default, our distributed firewalls offer protection up through layer 4 of the OSI network stack, enabling:
Application context-aware If organizations understand where data exists, and which users are supposed to have access to it, then:
Offers professional and managed services to help you design, deploy, and manage your distributed firewalls.
