Network Redesign

By segmenting a network, and applying appropriate controls, we can break a network into a multi-layer attack surface that hinders threat agents/actions from reaching our hardened systems.

Network segmentation has been a ``set it and forget it`` effort, which once done is almost immediately out of date. But network segmentation needs to be managed, and policies continuously enforced to maintain the desired network segmentation and this is where we come into picture.

We see customers with hundreds of firewalls, routers, and switches across their network, each on average having hundreds of rules per device. A typical enterprise therefore has to consider tens of thousands of rules when segmenting its network in order to maintain a security and compliance.

Which Routers And Switches To Protect?

  • Border routers that connect your company to the Internet
  • Switches that are used in the DMZ and screened subnets outside the firewall
  • Routers and switches that are connected to internal trusted or secure networks
  • Routers and switches that perform packet filtering

VLAN Segmentation

User productivity and network adaptability are important for business growth and success. VLANs make it easier to design a network to support the goals of an organization. The primary benefits of using VLANs are as follows:

  • Security
    Groups that have sensitive data are separated from the rest of the network, decreasing the chances of confidential information breaches.
  • Cost reduction
    Cost savings result from reduced need for expensive network upgrades and more efficient use of existing bandwidth and uplinks.
  • Better performance
    Dividing flat Layer 2 networks into multiple logical workgroups (broadcast domains) reduces unnecessary traffic on the network and boosts performance.
  • Shrink broadcast domains
    Dividing a network into VLANs reduces the number of devices in the broadcast domain.
  • Improved IT staff efficiency
    Simpler project and application management: VLANs aggregate users and network devices to support business or geographic requirements.v
