Overview

The core qualities of network virtualization offer a hidden gem: the chance to rethink the fundamentals of how application infrastructure, from database servers to email and web servers, is secured. micro-segmentation breaks up network activity into component workload services and where security measures can follow those workloads wherever they go, and regardless of what infrastructure they sit on or move to. This IDG Connect white paper from VMWare looks at how network virtualization and micro-segmentation can be used as a catalyst to improve application infrastructure security.
