Using Network Segmentation and Microsegmentation to Improve Enterprise Defense

When an online attacker penetrates your cyber defenses, he or she may take on the guise of an authorized user, making it possible to move laterally within your IT environment to steal information without detection. One growing strategy for limiting this lateral movement is network segmentation, which can restrict access to critical systems and help limit the damage caused by an online attacker. In this Dark Reading webinar, experts discuss methods for using network segmentation and microsegmentation as part of your organization's strategy for limiting the effects of an online compromise.
