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.
