Normal data center architecture concentrates security on important workloads. This is usually at the cost of creating minimal security for lower priority systems. Managing and deploying traditional security in virtual networking is costly. The cost forces data center administrators to ration security. Intruders take advantage of the low security in low-priority systems to infiltrate the data center.
To have a sufficient defense level, security administrators are required to rely on a high level of security in every system in a data center. This is made possible through micro segmentation because it embeds security functions into the infrastructure itself. Taking advantage of this allows administrators to depend on security functions for all workloads in the data center.
