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.



Dave Klein – Senior Director of Engineering & Architecture, Guardicore

Dave Klein is the Senior Director of Engineering & Architecture for Guardicore.  With more than 21 years of real-world cybersecurity experience he works with Guardicore teams, customers and industry thought leaders to address the challenges of securing modern hybrid cloud environments. Dave encourages CISOs faced with securing their organizations to adopt security solutions and best practices that work easily and seamlessly across their heterogeneous environments. Prior to Guardicore, Dave was the Engineering Manager for Forcepoint’s Federal Sector where he drove growth by adapting the company’s behavioral heuristics, Bayesian logic and predictive capabilities to defend US agencies against Insider and Advanced Persistent Threats.  Dave also worked with other vendors, government and private sector entities on the NIST response to Presidential Policy Directive 21 on Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience.  Before joining Forcepoint, Dave was a security leader at Cisco Systems.  Always a visionary, Dave was responsible for key enhancements in Cisco Network Admission Control, Ironport Web and Mail Gateways and other core Cisco security offerings and led some of the largest sales engagements for US Federal security solutions.  In the years preceding his work with Cisco, Dave worked for McAfee.  His work there included working with the City of New York post 9/11 for three years, helping shore up cyber defenses and developing a National, State and Local Government engineering and sales team. Dave has spoken on a wide variety of cybersecurity topics including micro-segmentation, crytpojacking, hybrid cloud adoption, PCI compliance, stages of the cyber security kill chain, interactions between the physical and cyber worlds as it relates to the radicalization and arming of domestic terrorists, and using cyber forensics in real world criminal cases.
