There are a lot of reasons that IT organizations are virtualizing their networks more and more—and chief among them is micro-segmentation.

Micro-segmentation, which comes hand-in-hand with network virtualization, divides the data center into distinct segments. Each segment can be secured separately. When security controls and network services are separately defined and communications is isolated, an attacker’s movements are restricted even if a breach in your data center perimeter occurs.

Micro-segmentation doesn’t just improve on traditional perimeter defenses. It is a whole new way of securing the data center.
