Network Microsegmentation Possible with NFV and SDN Combined

Network microsegmentation is foundational to zero-trust architectures. In a microsegmented model, the network knows which systems are allowed to talk to which other systems, in which ways and under what circumstances. Network microsegmentation allows sanctioned traffic to pass, allows each network...
