Server and Domain Isolation

With the explosive growth and adoption of pervasive, highly-connected networks, administrators are faced with a potentially paradoxical situation: to provide greater accessibility while maintaining security. Even though more ubiquitous connectivity can yield numerous business benefits—like productivity gains and operational cost savings—it has the potential to introduce new risks to the organization’s networked infrastructure. This can include costly virus attacks, rogue users and devices, and unauthorized access to sensitive information.

A Server and Domain Isolation solution based on Microsoft Windows Internet Protocol security (IPsec) and the Active Directory directory service enables administrators to dynamically segment their Windows environment into more secure and isolated logical networks based on policy and without costly changes to their network infrastructure or applications. This creates an additional layer of policy-driven protection, and helps better protect against costly network attacks, helps prevent unauthorized access to trusted networked resources, achieve regulatory compliance, and reduce operational costs.
