Networking and Security

Networking and security solutions are integral components of building agile and secure virtual datacenters. Partner solutions integrated with VMware products deliver security, compliance and advanced networking to help customers leverage their existing investments in network and security solutions, while dramatically improving operational efficiency and agility in their datacenter.

The Network and Security category is open to qualified partners interested in building and certifying network and security services over the VMware platform. Currently, the only certification available for use with the VMware® Ready™ for Networking and Security logo is the NSX Partner (Network and Security Services) Program.
