Micro-Segmentation and Your Security Strategy: Why micro-segmentation? The perimeter doesn’t stop all bad actors from making it inside data centers and cloud environments. Regardless of how many detection technologies organizations use, something is bound to get through – a new virus, phishing emails, or a bad actor working at a company.


Deployed at the network layer, segmentation was first developed to improve network performance. But as cybersecurity experts have realized that a “perimeter only” approach to security is not working, it’s become increasingly clear that micro-segmentation is foundational to data center and cloud security. Organizations looking to secure the interior of their environments often need to be more dynamic and more granular than network segmentation will allow. Micro-segmentation makes this possible.
