Micro-segmentation as design philosophy
The prospect of implementing a new design philosophy may induce groans from those looking to patch, rather than rebuild; but the long-term benefits deserve sober consideration. 

Though the article warns: "...while segmentation enhances an organization's security posture, it also adds complexity [more properly: complication] and costs... "; I think that assumes an outside-in, rather than a truly systemic implementation of the fact-based business rules specific to that organization, which should be used to determine segmentation and sequestering.  Micro-segmentation of the network directed from an informational requirements-based mapping, ought to result in a less complicated (so less costly in terms of added infrastructure), and more importantly dynamically responsive (to dynamic organizational requirements), solution.  This is, after all, a software-defined approach.  It only makes sense to incorporate the application-specific informational requirements system design which is (or ought to be), already serving that organization.
