ISOLATED ENVIRONMENTS

The growing requirements for securing data push data center managers to provide environments that are either partially or completely isolated from the rest of the enterprise environment—while still accessible to certain end users.

Over the years, isolated environments have evolved considerably. There were times not so long ago where an isolated environment was easy to imagine—a locked room containing a server or a collection of servers and workstations that simply could not be accessed unless you entered the room. Technology improvements have allowed the locked room concept to become less and less of a requirement.

Stronger log-in requirements, segmented networks, and firewalls provided the ability for these once segregated environments to be moved back into the data center or reconnected to the general network. However, growing regulatory and common sense security requirements to protect data and audit protection methods are making it more difficult to manage an isolated environment in the general data center. Microsoft System Center includes several components that meet not only the requirements of today’s growing data protection needs but also the framework that allows for continued evolution and modification to meet the requirements of tomorrow.
