TechTalk: Effective Micro-Segmentation for the Multi-Cloud

According to MarketsandMarkets, “more than 75% of businesses are planning to implement multi-cloud architectures within the next 2 years (2018–2019).” And with the rise of multi-cloud architectures, plans and budgets to employ micro-segmentation are on the rise too, to help protect against the lateral movement of an attack, its access to high-value assets, and its subsequent exfiltration of sensitive data.

But while ESG' research reports that already “68% of enterprise organizations use some type of software-based micro-segmentation technology” today, its implementation still presents challenges and fails to protect against today’s most pervasive assaults.

Specifically, today’s micro-segmentation solutions offer only simple, ACL-based control, failing to secure all layers of the protocol stack in a way that is also cost-effective and practical to operationalize, especially in newer and elastic, multi-cloud environments.

ShieldX Networks, a 2017 Gartner Cool Vendor in Cloud Security, will present a brief and instructional overview on the new criteria for effective micro-segmentation, including why micro-segmentation and security controls must work through Layer 7 to protect against advanced attacks, and how to evaluate a solution behind the hype to determine if the micro-segmentation product you plan to deploy will deliver the security you’ve been promised.

Overview

•Micro-segmentation state-of-the-union: What is it and how most IT organizations deploy it today

•Security challenges: What basic micro-segmentation does, and the compromises it misses

•Blueprint for effective micro-segmentation: Preventing the ‘confused deputy’ and its use in the spread of lateral attacks

•Best practice takeaways

    According to the Global Information Security Workforce Study from (ISC)2, the worker shortage in cybersecurity will rise to 1.8 million by 2022, increasing by 20% from 2015. But the gap in skilled workers is already evident, with “66% of respondents reported not having enough workers to address current threats."*

    In the second of our micro-segmentation TechTalk series, we’ll explore how this shortage creates a fundamental, operational roadblock for IT organizations implementing micro-segmentation in their highly-virtualized data centers and cloud deployments.

    Simply stated, when moving from a flat to a segmented network - IT organizations want the benefits of micro-segmentation, but are challenged by the manual, resource-intensive, up-front work of documenting security requirements and formulating the sophisticated policies required to implement most solutions available on the market today.

    ShieldX Networks, a 2017 Gartner Cool Vendor in Cloud Security, will take you through the real-world challenges of the implementation process, highlight where automation is needed, provide best practices on achieving automation using machine learning, and offer guidance on how the admin experience may be visualized and optimized to support micro-segmentation projects.

    Overview

     Micro-segmentation deployment requirements – manually defining and assigning policy at scale

     Get automated - applying machine learning for efficiency

     Using it - best practices for visualizing an automatically segmented network

     Q&A
