Changing with the times is frequently overlooked when it comes to data center security. Technology is becoming increasingly dynamic, but most data centers still use archaic security measures to protect their network, which doesn't provide sufficient protection against today's sophisticated attacks. Data centers house a huge amount of sensitive data, and thus there shouldn't be any shortcomings when implementing security to protect these environments. The focus has traditionally been on adding protection only at the perimeter to keep threats outside, but implementing perimeter-centric security leaves the inside of the data center vulnerable. Cybercriminals are constantly using advanced techniques to target assets inside the data center. Once inside, they are able to freely propagate their malware against other internal assets. Without upgrading data center security protections with advanced multilayered threat prevention and zero-day protections, hackers gain visibility and access to steal data and disrupt business processes before they are even detected. Join our session where will share more about recent data center breaches -- where lateral movement and sophisticated techniques were used -- and detail how organizations can prevent the next attack by using mirco-segmentation along with advanced multilayered threat prevention in the software-defined data center.
