A Multi-Cloud Segmentation Journey Through Big Data with Tetration

Chris Barrett, Tetration Specialist, Cisco

 The goal of this session is simple: we begin with an existing environment, full of applications and shared services, all running on top of a mixture of infrastructures, on-premises, and multiple clouds, deployed on bare metals, VMs, and containers - it's messy, just like the world you work on. We then take a freshly deployed Tetration and together walk through the step-by-step process of defining and enforcing segmentation and micro-segmentation policy through a combination of hierarchical "ground rules" and automated application policy discovery.

It takes a lot of visibility and context to detect and respond to sophisticated threats. Attackers usually target data, where enterprises have the least visibility and most uncertainty. In this session, we’ll explore new, sophisticated threats from inside and out, demonstrate how easy it is for adversaries to bypass traditional controls, and present a methodology to better protect data at scale, improve threat detection, and reduce uncertainty.
