Due to the complex and dynamic nature of modern data centers, along with very high traffic rates, data center security architecture must be re-evaluated in order to secure east-west (server-to-server) traffic.

Such traffic now represents over 80 percent of all traffic inside the data center, and organizations face significant challenges in gaining visibility into application communications and putting proper controls in place to meaningfully address security. Attackers require only one success to gain entrance to the entire data center - a breach is typically “game over.”

Read this white paper to learn why an effective approach to modern data center security must focus on application-layer visibility, granular micro-segmentation, real-time detection and automated response.
