Guardicore is specially designed for today’s software-defined and virtualized data centers and clouds, providing unparalleled visibility, active breach detection and real-time response. Its lightweight architecture scales easily to support the performance requirements of high traffic data center environments. A unique combination of threat deception, process-level visibility, semantics-based analysis and automated response engages, investigates and then thwarts confirmed attacks with pin-point accuracy.

Guardicore Centra™ Security Platform
Advanced Security for Modern Data Centers and Clouds
Modern data centers and clouds are home to critical corporate data and business processes, making them a lucrative target for cyber attacks. Once inside a data center, intruders and their activities are difficult to detect and remediate. According to multiple research reports, it typically takes many months to discover a breach, detect its source and respond.
The Guardicore Centra™ Security Platform solves these challenges with the five critical capabilities needed to secure modern data centers and clouds: flow visualization, micro-segmentation, breach detection, automated analysis and response.

How It Works

Guardicore employs a lightweight, distributed component across the data center that monitors all connections using multiple detection methods.
Unsuccessful connections are transparently rerouted to a high-interaction deception engine for investigation while successful connections are analyzed for malicious attributes. Centralized management performs semantic analysis of connections and attacker’s activity and alerts on deviations from authorized and expected behavior. Centra detects human attackers as well as APTs and bots, providing the ability to search for the full spread of the breach and enabling automated mitigation and remediation of infected servers. Guardicore Reveal™, part of the Centra Security Platform, discovers and tracks process-level activity across applications and correlates it with network events, providing a dynamic visual map of the entire data center network. It detects and reports on suspected anomalies and incidents, providing the security administrator with a quick view of all workloads.
The Centra Security Platform integrates with OpenStack, CloudStack and VMware infrastructures, and can be also installed in physical data centers and public clouds.

  • Comprehensive Breach Detection and Rapid Response
Multiple methods of detection discover attacks that are invisible to standard security products.

  • Application-CentricMicro-Segmentation
Quickly define, monitor and enforce application-centric micro-segmentation security policies.

  • Total Scalability and Security
Scales to protect highperformance traffic loads inside the throughout the entire data center.

  • Secure Cloud Migrations
Secure workloads during migrations to virtually any data center configuration.

  • Lower Cost of Ownership
Simplifies protection and management by reducing the time it takes to detect a breach and respond to it.
  • Dynamic Deception
A redirection architecture and dynamically generated live environments engages attackers and identifies their methods without disrupting data
center performance.

  • Policy-Based Detection
Security policies at the network and process levels enable instant recognition of unauthorized communications and non-compliant traffic.

  • Reputation Analysis
With GuardiCore reputation analysis, Centra detects suspicious domain names, IP addresses and file hashes within traffic flows providing comprehensive breach detection.

  • Automated Analysis and Response
GuardiCore provides real-time incident information with highfidelity intelligence about attack methods to help you understand the entire breach scenario and prioritize remediation resources.
