Network segmentation is clouded with myths. It’s complicated. It’s misunderstood. And it can be deadly if you get it wrong. (Just ask any major retailer that has experienced a breach lately.) It’s time to clear up the myths and get the facts.

In this in-depth webinar, we’ll walk through the most common myths around network segmentation:

  • Myth #1: Role-based authentication is segmentation.
  • Myth #2: Switches and VLANs provide adequate network segmentation.
  • Myth #3: I passed PCI-DSS, so my segmentation must be adequate.
  • Myth #4: Setting up multiple network segments is expensive and requires multiple security devices.
  • Myth #5: Network segmentation is just not a top business priority.

We’ll give you the unvarnished truth on why the typical answers to these myths don’t work, and show you how you can finally “segment and conquer” this critical business process.
