90% of your network traffic is internal (termed East-West traffic) and may never touch a firewall, yet most security concentrates on the perimeter inbound and outbound traffic (termed North-South). Should an exploit manage to leverage the weakest link in your perimeter and get inside then it then often has free reign to hop around inside looking for a target.
Chances are you’ll never know it was there, because you’re not looking for it.
Perimeter defences can now only be considered a first line, and to be truly protected you not only have to know what is going on inside your network, but be able to apply policies to control it.
vArmour is the first truly distributed single logical security system that spans your entire data centre, and scans and protects all the way to Layer 7 (application awareness). Policies can be enacted at the individual virtual machine level, yet controlled from a single interface.
