ISSA Thought Leadership Series


Candice Benson


Lisa O'Connell


Businesses have turned to IT for competitive differentiation. They demanded IT bring accelerated delivery, resource conservation and cost savings. IT has responded with DevOps/cloud-based models and practices that utilize automation, autoscaling and playbooks. With this speed comes increased risk, compliance concerns and has left IT staff wondering how they can gain visibility and segmentation across their entire heterogeneous environments easily, effectively and at this new speed of innovation. With the realization that traditional methods of segmentation like VLANs, cloud security groups and firewalls are not suitable for today’s rapidly changing enterprise environments enterprises have turned to software-defined segmentation.

In this webinar come learn about how modern software-defined segmentation solutions:

Start with visibility.
Provide enterprises with easy ways to identify and label workloads.
Provide easy to implement, granular enforcement that goes way beyond IP address and port but is able to lock down by process, user and domain.
Enables DevOp automation, provisioning and management.
Is decoupled from and works in an agnostic fashion across every enterprise platform.
Provides unparalleled security while enabling compliance and ongoing compliance validation.
