Guardicore and Mellanox to Deliver Agentless and High-Performance Micro-Segmentation in Data Centers

Today Guardicore announced that it has partnered with Mellanox to deliver the first agentless and high-performance, low latency micro-segmentation solution for high speed 10G-100G networks. The solution leverages both the Guardicore Centra security platform and Mellanox BlueField SmartNIC solutions to provide customers with hardware-embedded micro-segmentation security. This integration allows customers using BlueField SmartNICs to support micro-segmentation requirements for high speed networks or when other agent-based solutions cannot be used. The new solution is fully integrated and managed centrally by Guardicore Centra.
