Enterprise Segmentation

Enterprise segmentation divides your organization's network into zones and implements security controls to limit unauthorized lateral movement between them. Improve data protection, achieve services assurance and create integrated architectures, all while meeting complex regulatory and compliance requirements.

Achieving successful segmentation

Enterprise IT environments designed as flat networks are inherently exposed to increased security risks. But businesses making the smart transition to modern, highly secure segmented networks will face significant technical challenges.​ Our phased approach to enterprise segmentation can help you evaluate business relevance, improve environment visibility, develop technical designs and strategies to overcome common challenges, research implementation considerations and integrate and optimize your investment.

How do I get started?

With significant confusion in the industry around segmentation solutions, selecting the right tools, products and integrations can be a barrier to success. No matter where you are in your journey — if you're planning a segmentation effort or in the midst of one — our methodology is designed to help you achieve quick wins and develop long-term strategies that are agile and scalable.
Evaluate
Whether you need help solidifying your segmentation business case, assessing the risks and maturity of your current approach or building and executing a plan to fill gaps — we can help. Our services range from briefings, assessments and workshops to long-term consulting and technical engagements. We'll get you up to speed on the basics of segmentation architecture evaluation and design.
Design
Our incremental approach starts by helping you identify, determine and develop the proper foundation of an effective segmentation architecture. Our technical design experts then help you identify and build a framework that ultimately leads to solution consideration and selection. A strategic roadmap will identify the key activities and stakeholders required for successful down-phase implementation.
Implement
Solution implementation is the next step in our approach. Companies often struggle to implement segmentation for several reasons — the main one being complexity from the limitless number of technical variables present in brownfield environments. Our experts can help simplify this complexity by developing low-level designs and executing on plans developed in prior phases.
Operate
A properly segmented environment limits access by restricting lateral movement, affording your enterprise a higher level of protection. Once you've implemented your segmentation plan, our experts can help you operationalize, automate, monitor and manage your investment in a way that is agile and scalable.

Network Security
Network security ensures the safe transmission of data, not only across traditional Internet perimeters but also for the east-west traffic inside data centers. Decrease your organization's attack surface, improve visibility and reduce overall cyber risk, all while simplifying management and operations.
Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN)
Organizations are increasingly turning to SD-WAN for their digital initiatives, to optimize SaaS and cloud applications, and to simplify IT deployment and operations.
Identity and Access Management
Identity and Access Management (IAM) ensures the right people and devices have the right access at the right time. These solutions reduce risk to an organization’s data and systems by streamlining the authentication, authorization, automated provisioning/de-provisioning and access review process. This makes access decisions easier for organizations while providing cost and time savings through automation.
Data Center Networking
Data center networking is the foundation upon which enterprise architecture is built. When this foundation is reliable and high-performing, organizations can provision new services faster, leverage automation and orchestration to reduce the cost of ownership, empower development teams, and better secure assets through enterprise segmentation.
