Cisco Secure Workload (Tetration) Application Quickstart
What is the CSW Application Quickstart?
Business Technology Architects' (BTA) CSW Application Quickstart gets you started with application segmentation quickly, safely, and securely. BTA's deep experience with CSW has enabled us to define a set of segmentation use cases that are common across many customers. We've developed and refined these use cases; de-risking their deployment to provide you with rapid experience with the benefits of application segmentation.
How it Works
Select up to two of the typical application segmentation use cases.
BTA's experts will engage with your team in a consultative process to ensure success. First, we'll select up to 50 servers in a near-production environment. We'll work with your processes to deploy software agents on those servers, and collect real-time traffic for up to 2 weeks. BTA will host ADM (Application Dependency Mapping) sessions with your team to analyze the data. Using CSW's deep flow analysis and BTA's expertise, we'll define the two applications in your environment and model the required segmentation. After an iterative series of non-impactful testing and analyses, we'll follow your processes to enable segmentation and you'll experience, first-hand, the security advantages of application segmentation.
Application Segmentation Use Cases
Management Control Lockdown - Restricting server
management control protocols to a known set of
management workstations or jump servers.
Vulnerability Mitigation Policy Example - Blocking pings from hosts vulnerable to a particular CVSS Severity Rating (e.g. quarantine all "critical" severities).
Restricting Services - Restricting DNS, NTP, etc. to particular servers in your data center.
DMZ Workload Protection - Filtering incoming public Internet traffic to approved DMZ environments.
Internal Workload Protection - For hosts that should NOT connect with the internet, deploy policy that only allow them to communicate with known internal addresses.
