This white paper focuses on the benefits of deploying micro-segmentation using virtual network infrastructure. However, there are other critically important benefits from a virtual network that solve common problems in small to midsize enterprises. This 'solution leverage' is important in that it provides better return on the investment
in a virtual network deployment. Further, using one common platform for multiple functions simplifies operations and improves efficiency.
Micro-segmentation is a new cybersecurity solution for many small to medium-size enterprises. For the solution to succeed, however, teams must develop an effective process for deploying it. There are three important steps that provide a starting point for the process:
- Determine the network flows in your organization.
- Identify patterns and relationships in the traffic.
- Create and apply the policy model.
