    Mad about microsegmentation

    The tech industry seems fixated breaking things apart into ever-smaller units for greater levels of "granularity." Traditional standalone applications are maligned as "monoliths" that must be broken apart in to their component pieces, or "microservices." Broad brush security that covers an entire network is deemed insufficient, to be replaced by "microsegementation" -- applying security policies on a per-workload basis.

    But breaking up is hard to do. In his story, "Mad About Microsegmentation," senior technology editor Stephen Bigelow lays out the pitfalls that will befall operators as they go down this road.

    Breaking with tradition is hard too. For decades, one of IT's primary responsibilities has been to protect its systems from catastrophic failure by performing regular point-in-time backups that can get back to a known good state.

This month's cover story explores the tools behind micro apps and how applications have evolved from the complex beasts they once were.

    But as organizations turn their attention to micro apps for mobile devices, they must also consider offering unified workspaces to users across different endpoints and OSes. One columnist discusses this trend, while another provides some tips for eliminating common mobile strategy roadblocks.
