New white paper describes how micro segmentation works and investigates the role of Layer 7 visibility in creating strong security solutions in the data center.
Paris, France – January 7, 2016: Qosmos®, the market leader in DPI-based IP traffic classification and network intelligence technology for use in physical, SDN and NFV architectures, today announced the release of a new white paper, “Data Center Security: Micro-Segmentation and Application Visibility”, prepared by Jeff Wilson, Senior Research Director, Cybersecurity Technology, IHS Infonetics, on behalf of Qosmos.
This whitepaper looks at how virtualization impacts data center architectures, the critical need for security mechanisms and the emergence of micro-segmentation. It explains how micro-segmentation works, how it enhances the protection of the Software-Defined Data Center and investigates the role of Layer 7 traffic visibility in creating strong security solutions.
Jeff Wilson, Senior Research Director, Cybersecurity Technology, IHS Infonetics: “All the benefits of Layer 7 visibility in a traditional network architecture open up when adding Layer 7 classification in a virtualized environment: administrators can see traffic based on applications or even components of applications, providing the ability to build a wide variety of security policies.”
Erik Larsson, VP marketing, Qosmos: “This white paper confirms the need for new products like L7 Classifiers integrated into the hypervisor to extend visibility from Layer 1-4 all the way up to Layer 7 and implement robust firewalling rules based on application visibility.”
