Guardicore vs. VMware NSX: Which is right for you?

Organizations are looking for faster and simpler ways to protect critical assets in data center and hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

That’s why businesses are increasingly adopting software-defined segmentation – or micro-segmentation. It reduces risk while providing more platform independence and agility than traditional approaches like network firewalls and VLANs.

Download this report for a comparison between two popular micro-segmentation solutions, the Guardicore Centra Security Platform and VMware NSX, to learn more about their features and what they can do for you.

  • The benefits of a PCI-compliant SD-WAN

    Retailers are embracing digital transformation to enhance customer experience, improve operations, and meet the ongoing threat of online shopping. But as they do so, they potentially are increasing their exposure to cybercriminals.

    In this blog, ensure your retail business is doing everything it can to secure its networks by:

    • Looking at the new types of attacks leading to data breaches
    • Understanding why old security methods are often insufficient
    • Learning how an SD-WAN solution not only addresses the business needs associated with application device and network proliferation, but also enables more efficient and effective PCI compliance

  • Best practices for microsegmentation in hybrid workloads

    Micro-segmentation has a strong reputation in hybrid and multi-cloud environments due to its ability to secure critical assets and restrict communication across a heterogeneous IT ecosystem.

    The next challenge for future-focused businesses is to ensure that the technology doesn’t add unnecessary complexity or risk, allowing enterprises to embrace the latest advances while securely managing dynamic and adaptable IT environments and workloads.
