    What is Micro-segmentation - Normal data center architecture concentrates security on important workloads. This is usually at the cost of creating minimal security for lower priority systems. Managing and deploying traditional security in virtual networking is costly. The cost forces data center administrators to ration security. Intruders take advantage of the low security in low-priority systems to infiltrate the data center.

    To have a sufficient defense level, security administrators are required to rely on a high level of security in every system in a data center. This is made possible through micro segmentation because it embeds security functions into the infrastructure itself. Taking advantage of this allows administrators to depend on security functions for all workloads in the data center.

    Administrators are given more useful ways to describe the workload through micro segmentation. They can describe inherent characteristics of a workload, instead of depending on IP addresses. The information is then tied back to the security policy. Once this is done, the policy can answer questions such as: what kind of data will this workload handle (personally identifiable information, financial, or low-sensitivity)?, or what will the workload be used for (production, staging, or development)? Additionally, administrators can combine these characteristics to describe inherited policy attributes. For instance, a production workload handling financial data may get a higher level of security than a workload handling financial data.
