Macrosegmentation is now in the Networking Lexicon (soon we'll abbreviate it)

Macrosegmentation at the networking level just got a definition today, we're sure to remove the hyphen (Macro-segmentation) and abbreviate it.

A warm up on the details here:


At its most basic level, macrosegmentation will allow the re-direction of traffic between specific points in the network to enable logical topologies with firewalls and load balancing systems.

Very nifty trick considering:

     Placement of the equipment is location independent.

     Cybersecurity can continue to manage FW rules without blended support requirements.

     It should* work with multi-vendor equipment.

It also brings back fond memories of an Arista whiteboard barstool in VMworld.  Wish I took a picture of it.
