We’re kicking off a series of podcasts with Illumio’s resident Microsoft expert, Darren Wolstein, who brings two decades of Microsoft admin and architect experience to the conversation.
Throughout the series, I’ll be asking Darren to go back to his days in the trenches and share some perspective on the challenges he faced running and securing Microsoft environments, the things that drew him to Illumio, and how he’s helped to shape the Illumio ASP to 'illuminate Windows' and make the lives of Microsoft admins easier.
- How can you improve visibility in mixed Microsoft/non-Microsoft environments?
- Why shouldn’t you buy another firewall for your data center?
- What should you consider when securing Active Directory and other core services?
- How can existing AD group membership be extended to the world of micro-segmentation?
Tune in for the answers.
In our first episode...
Darren talks about his experiences as a Microsoft Architect at various technology companies—and one very unlikely place where he went from the task of decommissioning a small Windows environment to scaling it to over 30,000 hosts by the end of his tenure.
We hope you enjoy the show; and if there are topics that you’d like us to cover, send us an email.
