Traditional Segmentation Fails in the Face of Today’s Expanding Attack Surface

July 15, 2019

An expanding and fragmenting attack surface—which results from mobility and multi-cloud adoption—is undermining the ability of network engineering and operations leaders to maintain network performance, security, reliability, and availability. Traditional network-based segmentation, in addition to even more recent microsegmentation techniques, are insufficient. Constrained by the network architecture, they are tactical rather than strategic and focused on business logic. They are also typically static, allowing once-trusted users, devices, and applications free rein in their permitted segments. Finally, they lack comprehensive security visibility, across the network and into encrypted flows, which is essential to effective risk management.
