Organizations are taking advantage of digital transformation in their quest to boost agility and shrink infrastructure costs. However, this transformation often comes at a cost: a larger, more complex security attack surface. Guardicore Centra aims to provide a simpler, faster way to reduce attack surfaces and prevent lateral movement in an IT environment via micro-segmentation security policies.

In this product review webcast, SANS analyst Dave Shackleford shares his experience of putting Centra through its paces. Dave will discuss:

  • Micro-segmentation: What is it?
  • Micro-segmentation focus and product emphasis
  • Enforcement and policies
  • Solution features
  • Detection and analysis
  • Review conclusions

Register today and be among the first to receive the associated whitepaper written by Dave Shackleford.
