Enterprises are increasingly being asked to improve security protection while simultaneously maintaining business and network performance. To address this, host-based segmentation is increasing in adoption.

The goal of this whitepaper is:

  • Explain the evolution of networks, SDN and host-based “security segmentation”
  • Describe core competencies and trade-offs of traditional segmentation vs. host-based segmentation
  • Build a case for decoupling security from the network based on design logic and efficacy
