Product Details

The Guardicore Centra Security Platform is a comprehensive data center and cloud security solution that delivers the simplest and most intuitive way to apply micro-segmentation controls to reduce the attack surface and detect and control breaches within east-west traffic. It provides deep visibility into application dependencies and flows and enforcement of network and individual process-level policies to isolate and segment critical applications and infrastructure.

Guardicore Centra collects detailed information about an organization’s IT infrastructure through a mix of agent-based sensors, network-based data collectors, and virtual private cloud (VPC) flow logs from cloud providers. This information is then placed into context through a flexible and highautomated labeling process that includes integration with any existing data sources like orchestration systems and configuration management databases. The result is a dynamic visual map of the entire IT infrastructure that allows security teams to view activity down to the individual process level on both a real-time and historical basis. These detailed insights into application behavior can then be used to create granular micro-segmentation policies quickly through an intuitive visual interface.

Centra’s micro-segmentation capabilities are also complemented by an innovative set of breach detection and response capabilities. Centra provides protection for your entire infrastructure, protecting workloads in hybrid environments with any combination of legacy systems, bare-metal servers, virtual machines, containers, and cloud instances in Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.


  • Guardicore Reveal: 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.

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


  • Broadest Coverage: Guardicore protects critical assets no matter where they are deployed or accessed. In the cloud, on-premises, virtual servers, bare metal, or containers.
  • Consistent Policy Enforcement: Guardicore enables the same level of granular, process-level rules across different operating environments like Windows and Linux.
  • Faster and Simpler Segmentation: Guardicore supports 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: Guardicore’s software-based approach to segmentation gets you faster results with no changes to networks, applications and no downtime.
  • More Legacy System Support: Guardicore supports more legacy operating systems, such as Windows 2003, CentOS 6, and RHEL5, and AS400.
  • Comprehensive Breach Detection: Guardicore provides multiple breach detection capabilities, including reputation analysis, dynamic deception, and threat intelligence firewall.
