A better way to segment your data center and cloud

Reduce your attack surface

A software-based segmentation approach simplifies the process of reducing risk without requiring costly security hardware.

Prevent lateral movement

A single, scalable platform with real-time threat detection and response capabilities to detect lateral movement and minimize dwell time through the entire cyberattack kill chain.

Secure critical IT assets

A simple and fast way to enforce Zero Trust principles inside a hybrid cloud infrastructure to protect your critical assets from ransomware.

The best segmentation solution

Broadest coverage

Protect critical assets no matter where they are deployed or accessed: in the cloud, on-premises, virtual servers, bare metal, or containers.

Consistent policy enforcement

Enable the same level of granular, process-level rules across different operating environments, such as Windows and Linux.

Faster and simpler segmentation

Support a flexible allowlist/denylist model for fast risk reduction with a few rules. Others force you into a complex allowlist-only model.

No changes, no downtime

Get faster results with no changes to networks or applications and no downtime.

More legacy system support

Support more legacy operating systems, such as Windows 2003, CentOS 6, RHEL5, and AS400.

Comprehensive breach detection

Detect breaches with reputation analysis, dynamic deception, and a threat intelligence firewall.

Enterprise-wide visibility

See how applications communicate in a visual map with full context, including the network, assets, processes, users, and traffic flows.

AI-powered segmentation

Prioritize business-critical applications and apply segmentation policy in just a few clicks.

Segmentation insight

Detect high-risk endpoints and servers, assess their level of exposure, and immediately secure them with laser-sharp segmentation policies.


It became clear relatively quickly that we could not achieve the speed and depth we needed with classic segmentation solutions.
