Introduction: The heart of the data center, today’s business applications are highly dynamic with connectivity between the various application components that are constantly changing to support business continuity and digital transformation initiatives. This constant state of flux increases the organization’s attack surface and creates gaps in the security infrastructure, which network and security operations teams are struggling to plug.
To address these challenges, we need a solution that supports visibility, agility, automation and extensibility, while not compromising on tight security and compliance requirements.
Solution: Cisco’s industry-leading software-defined networking (SDN) solution, ACI (Application Centric Infrastructure) makes the network agile by automating IT work flows and securing data centers through whitelist model, policy enforcement and micro-segmentation. It puts the business application in the center, providing a centralized platform to manage application policies across physical and virtual workloads, thereby enabling customers build agile and secure next generation data centers.
