Guardicore Centra was born out of the Israeli Defence Force (IDF) by a group of world-class cyber security experts. In their day-to-day activities in the IDF, this team recognized the problem that, as good as perimeter and end-point security technologies are, anyone can be breached. And, once breached, they recognized that it is very difficult to detect and contain a sophisticated attacker’s lateral movement within a data center environment.
With this problem in mind, the team built the Guardicore Centra security platform. The Centra platform is built on a foundation of visibility, providing network (layer 4) and application process-level (layer 7) visualization across entire heterogeneous environments. With this level of visibility, the platform’s policy engine delivers simple implementation and enforcement of global policies, segmentation between applications/networks and process-to-process level micro-segmentation.
With a dramatically reduced attack surface, the platform then continues to monitor all east-west data center traffic flow and identifies all malicious activity based on policy violations, reputation services, and user behavior analytics. All suspicious traffic is dynamically redirected out to a Guardicore’s Deception environment, where an attacker is allowed to continue their work while the honeypot system captures extensive intel on the attack – who, where, and what. Based on this intel, the platform automates incident response with highly relevant remediation steps.
Guardicore’s converged platform provides critical controls across ANY infrastructure, and can best be summarized by the following key points:
There is no need in applications changes and downtime – application owners do not need to work hard at weird times and can continue with their
Guardicore Partner Program
The Guardicore Partner Program offers differentiated go-to-market service offerings and revenue opportunity. The program is designed to drive value and help you gain a competitive advantage in the security marketplace. As a Guardicore partner, GCC can leverage the Guardicore Centra Security Platform to deliver project-based service engagements, embedding it into an operational services model or simply to address a specific use case.
