Synopsis and overview of the session

Understand the evolution of segmentation from firewalls to SDN-based approaches, and the existing limitations of both. Join this talk to discuss and discover the advantages of the next evolution – host-based security segmentation. During this talk you’ll learn how decoupling segmentation policy from the network can improve speed, reduce complexities, and greatly reduce risk across any environment – VMs, cloud, even containers.

Focus Network, in partnership with Illumio, will be bringing leading IT and security executives together for this upcoming lunch where we will cover topics including:

  • The definition of security segmentation
  • How segmentation evolved and the remaining challenges
  • Benefits of decoupling security segmentation from the network
  • 5 steps to a successful segmentation strategy
