Subject: VLAN Security

We have different Cisco Catalyst switches configured for VLANS. With the
current configuration

1. All trunks have a  native VLAN, which is not used by any User. 2.
Management VLAN is other than VLAN 1.

We have different VLANs in place, however these are only used for
different Servers ,And all Users are only members of VLAN-1

Does it make sense to have all the user ports migrated to a Different
VLAN (other than VLAN 1) ? 
Is there a security advantage in this ?
