In our company, we have a data center that has approximately 200 servers running Nutanix. We wanted to protect these servers from both internal and external attacks. By implementing Guardicore Centra, it has given us defense against attacks from the outside, as well as those that originate from inside of the organization. We protect Microsoft machines, as well as some that are running Linux. We also have an SAP HANA database that is protected by Guardicore.
We are trying to centralize our firewalling as well as provide application segmentation and environment segmentation. We have a couple of aggregators onsite and the rest are on the cloud.
The primary use case was for segmentation. The range of platforms and operating systems that the solution covers seems good. Currently, we use it for all our Linux operating systems and some of our Windows environment. We just deployed agents to Guardicore in our data center. We are using the latest version of the solution.
We are using Guardicore Centra mostly for security. I work in the cyber security department at MONEX, and we use this solution mostly for visibility. The product offers good visibility of what is going on in the network and the connections that the servers are making, regardless of the platform that they are on. They could be on-premise, on the cloud, or virtual. I'm recently working on micro-segmentation of our principal payment applications, like SWIFT.
We are using it to segregate all of our different environments: staging, production, QA, as well as our applications. We are essentially replacing our traditional, internal firewalls and depending completely on Guardicore to secure all of our applications.
We are a partner, not a customer. We would like to be in a position of trying to provide consultation for this solution and delivery of the product to clients. So, we have partnered with Guardicore in India and we are trying to sell this product and that is our primary use case. The primary use case that we are implementing this product for with clients is micro-segmentation.
This solution will be implemented in several environments for our collaborators.
We use GuardiCore for East-West data traffic in the data center, micro-segmentation, and security policies. We also use GuardiCore for ransomware protection and analyzing the East-West traffic in a data center.
Guys, what is the best solution for microsegmentation?
Today we have a 100% Cisco + AlgoSec equipment base. I'd like to hear about Guardicore - what can you tell me about it?
