Microsegmentation – Secure Your Internal Network


Since 2000, secure networks have been built by segmenting traffic at the switch port level from server to server, radically limiting east-west traffic. Today, most opens systems, servers, routers, and switches ship with all the security controls open. While this approach is initially more work, it ultimately provides a more secure network and is easier than coming back and closing up all the holes. Ubiquity is a very important concept in security.
