dc.description.abstract Due to the increasing number of threats and attacks that threaten the network during the recent years, novel methods and techniques have been improved to secure the infrastructure of the network and the data transmitted within it. Micro-segmentation and segmentation techniques are popularly used over computer networks to reduce the defensive versus cyberattack. These techniques aim to minimize the damage obtained from attackers by segmenting the network into many clusters or sections and limiting the communications among them. Thus, each cluster or segment within the network becomes isolated from the others and this will increase the security of highly sensitive data networks and prevent unauthorized people and attackers from reaching to these sensitive data. In this paper, the micro-segmentation and segmentation techniques have been studied. Further, two scenarios of the implementation of micro-segmentation and segmentation within networks have been studied. Then, an enhanced scenario has been suggested to overcome the limitations of those two scenarios. The suggested scenario integrates NSX-T micro-segmentation with Sky API and policy enforcer to enhance the security and the performance of the network. After that, a comparison between all scenarios has been achieved to show which one is the best. en_US
