055 – Security Segmentation Doesn't Have to be Painful
When software was decoupled from the underlying hardware – a process known as “virtualization” — a revolution followed. Multiple applications could exist on one server; it was the first step in the transformation of the data center.
Illumio has a similar idea for security in the data center. As Faraz Aladin, head of Technical Product Marketing at Illumio, discusses with ActualTech Media Partner James Green, the key to proper microsegmentation – which Illumio calls “security segmentation” – is breaking the dependency between existing security mechanisms and the network itself. Once that’s done, Aladin says, security segmentation can be implemented without network disruption.
Highlights of the show include:
- What security segmentation is
- Security segmentation in practice
- The importance of properly defining workload labels
- Compelling use cases for microsegmentation, including compliance issues
