Despite the cloud computing trend, financial institutions still have significant capital investments in traditional IT infrastructure components within their existing data centers. These facilities typically contain essentially flat, open networks, as network segmentation for cybersecurity was not a consideration many years ago. However, malicious actors have recently found success in such open environments, where much of the lucrative data and systems are readily accessible after compromising a device elsewhere in the network. Certain legacy and mainframe applications may be unsuitable for migration to the cloud, and will continue to run in private data centers with traditional architectures. Consequently, this legacy infrastructure with its indigenous applications and their associated data also needs the protection afforded by network segmentation.

Download this use case to see how one of the largest financial institutions in the world created network segmentation with the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform to increase security and protect data in their traditional data centers with minimal business disruption.
