Guardicore: Software-defined micro-segmentation
Guardicore – Information security application for modern IT systems
Guardicore’s information security platform provides data center protection, whether the servers are in the cloud, on a local site, or in any other process-level integration. It is able to detect and predict movement in all applications up to the Process and Port level in real time and continuously. The architecture is built on a dynamic cloud concept and allows micro-segmentation to prevent the lateral spread of the threatening factors.
The need to enforce segmentation within the network simply and efficiently
The reality today is that the IT system or DevOps are in the dark in terms of information security in everything related to the interior of the modern data center. Modern development processes provide tremendous flexibility – creating an almost impossible challenge for information security teams to maintain and maintain the right connections between servers.
Beyond that, the data centers are becoming larger and more complex and the challenge is to constantly make sure what are the correct connections between the servers in the array. Today, workloads are operating in a growing number of technologies, including virtual infrastructures, containers, physical servers and even end stations – all of which are subject to exposure today.
As a result, security teams are required to face an increasingly dynamic challenge that requires maintaining visibility into the manner and type of connections between applications, monitoring the defined standard and compatibility and of course quickly identifying a breach.
In reality, the impact of traditional information security policies is enormous. Studies from recent years show worrying data:
- The level of risk increases in the face of a decreasing level of compliance
49% of respondents in all studies say that exposure to infrastructure security is a ‘headache’.
CISOs and security teams are in “darkness” due to the low level of visibility to the infrastructure. In addition, cloud workloads, if any, now pose an almost impossible challenge for IT security professionals who are required to reduce risks and remain compliant.
- Long stay of security vulnerabilities
71% of respondents state that security vulnerabilities will cause direct damage.
Security crews have already spent too much time extinguishing “fires” and chasing False Positive incidents, leading to a long stay of actual security breaches – 191 days on average.
- Delay in development times and security checks
58% of DevOps respondents see security as a deterrent to the agility to which they are accustomed.
DevOps people often bypass security. Developers refrain from engaging in security due to delays in development times, monitoring frequent changes, reviews and security checks.
- high costs
The average cost of hacking into enterprise information is $ 3.6 million.
Expanding attack areas – Access to information from anywhere and cloud adoption lead to wider attack surfaces that expose the organization’s critical assets to be attacked.
