Application segmentation

Application segmentation

Cisco Tetration dramatically improves data center security by enabling zero-trust operations. Using behavior-based application insight and machine learning, it provides customers with white-list policy model enabling segmentation through automated policy enforcement. Its infrastructure agnostic approach supports both on-premises and public cloud workloads.

Features

Telemetry that’s faster than fast

Telemetry that’s faster than fast

Collects meta data from every packet, every flow along with process information. Using unique indexing approach, search and explore tens of billions of flow records with natural-language techniques. Get actionable insight in less than a second.

Actionable application insight

Actionable application insight

Get real-time telemetry data from application components and use behavior-analysis algorithms. Identify application groups and their communication patterns and service dependencies. Get automated whitelist policy for segmentation anywhere.

Application segmentation

Application segmentation

Enforce consistent policy across on-premises data centers and public and private clouds to enable application segmentation. Continuously monitor for compliance deviations and identify them in minutes in your production network.

Network performance

Network performance

Gain valuable insights on per flow performance including hop-by-hop views that enable you to quickly determine if the bottleneck is on the network or the server.

Open APIs

Open APIs

Easily create your own custom apps on the platform by using comprehensive, detailed telemetry data in the data lake. Receive out-of-box notification or generate your own custom notifications. Allow querying information using RESTful API.
