What is Guardicore Centra?

Guardicore Centra™ is designed to give users a more agile, cost-effective, and secure segmentation solution than legacy firewalls can provide. The vendor states that because Guardicore’s software approach is decoupled from the physical network, It provides a faster alternative to firewalls, and further enables users to:
  • Visualize applications and create segmentation policies with a few clicks.
  • Create or change policies without disruptive infrastructure changes.
  • Apply Adaptive Policies Based on Business Context

Guardicore Centra combines process-level visibility into applications and workloads with granular policy definition, enabling security teams to discover, visualize, control, and monitor activity across data center and cloud environments. The same tool used for visualization of end-to-end application dependencies is used for cloud migration. By Better understanding applications and interdependencies, organizations can proactively identify how applications are communicating and then use this information for migration, implement more granular policy controls and detect breaches faster.

Guardicore Centra automatically generates a detailed visual map of activity across all environments in use. Process-level activity is correlated with network events, giving administrators a visual view of all workloads. Administrators can drill down for more detail, including specific assets, processes and time frames, to gain a full understanding of communications within and between data center and cloud environments. Guardicore Centra also makes creating application-centric micro-segmentation policies simple, fast, and non-disruptive.

Guardicore is used across the organization. It helps in micro-segmentation and lateral movement. We are using across it across environments like UAT, Production, Development, etc. Gives very detailed information on the network flows along with services and port numbers on which it is communicating. Architecture is designed in a very simplified manner to understand. Network logs are also easy to understand and troubleshoot if required.
  • Network traffic flow within environment of organization.
  • Creating maps for visibility and drill down is a key feature.
  • Labelling of servers can be done via running script.
  • Alerts can be sensitized for the traffic not seen.
  • Limited support to legacy infrastructure.
  • Integration with third party is a bit tedious.
  • Awaiting support for Kubernetes in the next version.
This is the best possible solution for enterprise-level organizations where server counts will be in the thousands. To manage these and understand the communication can be very cumbersome without this tool. Ease of creation map zone and application-wise can be relaxing to OS teams and support teams as well. There is no limit to labeling schema of servers and it gives the freedom to do so.
Support has been available 24*7. It also depends on criticality but support is available. Also, the right expertise from the team helps in identifying the issue quickly and this helps in less production downtime if required. The ticket is resolved with RCA.
