Use Case: Apply Network Segmentation to a Virtualized Data Center

Private cloud computing provides businesses with flexible, scalable, on-demand IT resources. However, security remains a significant challenge. The very principles that make cloud computing attractive run counter to cybersecurity best practices, such as separation and segmentation. Malicious actors seek these open environments where much of the lucrative data they desire can be found, and if a virtual environment, without proper security and segmentation in place, is compromised, the attacker has access to everything – critical data included. Download the Network Segmentation use case to see how the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform applies segmentation to increase security and protect applications and data in a virtualized data center.
