Network Segmentation


Network Segmentation is the process of separating networks containing sensitive information from those that do not.


By segmenting networks, the security focus can be placed on the areas that matter most. This reduces the costs of compliance with many regulations. Additionally, labor intensive or costly hardening may be limited to those networks that are needed the most. This also guarantees that only approved employees have access to sensitive information, which reduces the negative effects if a breach should occur.
