Micro-segmentation is like stained glass. If someone breaks one panel, the whole picture still stands.
When you visit old European buildings and cathedrals, you’ll notice that many windows have small glass sections. If someone threw a rock at one of these windows, a small section would shatter, not the whole thing. In essence, micro-segmentation works on the same principle for cybersecurity.
Specifically, it allows each app in your system to separate into a dedicated section. This way, the app will only use the system resources it needs. As a result, even if a cyberattack targets this section, it’s easily replaceable and won’t affect the rest of the system.
In this guide, lets go over all matters related to micro-segmentation. And learn what it is, how it works, its benefits, and much more.
