IBM i Micro-Segmentation: A Strategic Approach to Network Security

Micro-segmentation represents a transformative methodology in the realm of network security. It eschews the traditional focus on individual actions, opting instead for a strategy that partitions the network into more manageable, smaller segments. The following points provide a succinct overview of micro-segmentation and zero-trust security:


This approach redefines network segmentation, basing it on IP addresses and ports rather than tracking specific actions.

Zero-Trust Security:

This security model transcends conventional methods by stipulating not only who can access resources, but also the specific locations from which these resources can be accessed.

Granular Control:

Zero-trust security offers a level of control that is both detailed and precise, allowing for meticulous regulation of user activity across various network segments.



 Ransomware and other advanced attacks are causing greater damage than ever
before, and many of these attacks are the result of lateral movement inside the

network after hackers have penetrated firewall defenses.

In an escalating threat landscape, breaches are inevitable. The ColorTokens

Xtended ZeroTrust™ Platform stops the spread of breaches before they can do

damage, preventing them from becoming large scale attacks that can harm your
