Microsegmentation for Network Security – AlgoSec / SANS Webinar

Organizations heavily invest in a mix of security solutions to keep their networks safe, but still, struggle to close the security gaps. Micro-segmentation helps protect the organizations' network against the lateral movement of malware and minimizes the risk of insider threats. Micro-segmentation has received lots of attention as a possible solution, but many IT security professionals aren't sure where to begin or what approach to take.

Dave Shackleford, the owner and principal consultant of Voodoo Security and a SANS analyst hosts Professor Avishai Wool, AlgoSecs CTO and co-founder, in this practical webinar to unveil why organizations are increasingly micro-segmenting for their networks, and guide you through each stage of a micro-segmentation project from development of the correct micro-segmentation strategy to effective implementation and maintenance of a micro-segmented network. 

Register now to this live webinar to learn:

  • What micro-segmentation is
  • Why and how micro-segmentation can be part of the equation in protecting your network.
  • Common pitfalls in microsegmentation projects and how to avoid them.
  • The stages of a successful microsegmentation project.
