Network segmentation provides which of the following benefits?
Security through isolation
Packet flooding through all ports
High availability through redundancy
Network segmentation in computer networking is the act or profession of splitting a computer network into subnetworks, each being a network segment. Advantages
of such splitting are primarily for boosting performance and improving security through isolation.
Advantages of network segmentation:
Improved security: Broadcasts will be contained to local network. Internal network structure will not be visible from outside
Reduced congestion: Improved performance is achieved because on a segmented network there are fewer hosts per subnetwork, thus minimizing local traffic
Containing network problems: Limiting the effect of local failures on other parts of network
