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.
