Data center administrators face a significant challenge: They need to secure the data center without compromising the performance and functionality that new data center environments enable. Many are looking to secure the data center using solutions designed for the Internet edge, but these solutions are not enough. The data center has unique requirements around provisioning, performance, virtualization, applications, and traffic that Internet-edge security devices are simply not designed to address.
Download this white paper to see why securing the data center requires a solution that can:
Provide visibility and control over custom data center applications
Handle asymmetric traffic flows and application transactions between devices and data centers
Adapt as data centers evolve: to virtualization, software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), Cisco Application-Centric Infrastructures (ACIs) and beyond
Address the entire attack continuum: before, during, and after an attack
Integrate with security deployed across the entire network
Support geograpically dispersed inter-DC traffic and deployments, including private, public and cloud environments
