Software-defined security is a set of the security model in which the information security in a computing environment is regulated and managed by security software. Most of the security controls like segmentation of the network, detection of intrusions, and access control are automated and they are controlled through security software. Software-defined security is utilized in IT environments that utilize services of the cloud.
