Akamai Guardicore is the market leader in data center and hybrid cloud security. With the Akamai Guardicore Microsegmentation platform (previously Guardicore Centra™), we offer our customers the optimal solution for software-based segmentation.


Enterprise IT infrastructure has evolved from traditional data centers to cloud and hybrid cloud architectures with a blend of platforms and application deployment models. This modernization of IT is helping many organizations achieve greater business agility and reduce infrastructure costs. However, it is also creating a larger and more complex security attack surface that does not have a well-defined perimeter. Each individual server, virtual machine, or cloud resource is now a possible point of exposure, and attackers are increasingly adept at moving laterally towards high-value targets once they find a way in.

Software-based segmentation solution for application fencing and microsegmentation

The Akamai Guardicore Microsegmentation platform is a comprehensive data center and cloud security solution that provides the simplest and most intuitive way to apply microsegment controls to reduce the attack surface and to detect and control east-west traffic breaches. It provides deep visibility into application dependencies and flows, as well as network and individual process-level policy enforcement to isolate and segment critical applications and infrastructure.
