Giving SecOps a New Weapon with Security Group Access Control Lists

Segmenting networks using Security Group Access Control Lists (SGACL) reduces the threat surface by limiting the reach of attacks in east-west traffic to within segments. By sending the permit and deny logs generated by the SGACLs to SIEM applications, SecOps can analyze and correlate them with indicators of compromise generated by other security appliances.

Identify Endpoints, Enforce Policies, and Stop Threats with Network Segmentation

Granular network segmentation is the preferred defensive method to prevent the lateral spread of threats through networks. It is also ideal to enforce policies that restrict access to applications by trusted devices and individuals. Automation for identifying, grouping, and enforcing segmentation policies is key to securing networks of all sizes.

The four-step journey to securing the industrial network

Just as the digitization and increasing connectivity of business processes has enlarged the attack surface of the IT environment, so too has the digitization and increasing connectivity of industrial processes broadened the attack surface for industrial control networks. Though they share this security risk profile, the operational technology (OT) environment is very different from that […]
