Network Segregation: Securing Networks with Segmentation

Network Segregation is the process of separating different types of traffic on a network. It is used to ensure that sensitive information is kept secure by isolating it from other types of traffic. It can be accomplished in a variety of ways, including the use of virtual local area networks (VLANs), firewalls, and network access control lists (ACLs). Network segregation can also be used to limit the amount of traffic that is sent to or from certain areas of a network. This can help to reduce the risk of unauthorized access to sensitive information, as well as to improve network performance by reducing the amount of traffic that needs to be processed by the network.
