SECURE

Sounds good, BUT


How do we move as fast as the business needs us to move,
while maintaining our current environment and without
having to start over?

You need a new approach to


networking and security that gives you:
the agility and speed you need to support the exisiting
business, while providing an inherently more agile &
secure path forward.

Problem: Data Center Network Security


Perimeter-centric network security has proven insufficient, and micro-segmentation is operationally infeasible

Why traditional approaches are operationally infeasible

Create firewall rules before provisioning


Update F irewall rules when move or change
Delete firewall rules when app decommissioned
Problem increases with more East-West traffic
