Achieve Zero Trust Security with Micro-Segmentation
Overcome the common challenges in implementing micro-segmentation by stepping up to a purpose-built internal firewall that's intrinsic to your infrastructure.
Four Reasons to Choose VMware for Network and Micro-Segmentation
Automate Policy Discovery
Accelerate policy generation with automated application discovery, recommendations for groups and segmentation rules, and intuitive workflows for iterative planning — all driven by the unique visibility NSX has into network traffic and workload context.
Simplify with Automated Policy Management
Enable security to move at the speed of development with an API driven, object-based policy model that ensures new workloads automatically, inherits relevant security policies, and automates policy mobility with workloads.
Extend Beyond L4 Controls to Stateful L7 Security
Get Better Protection with an Agentless Architecture
Benefit from the enhanced security and control isolation of an agentless architecture, immune to malware that can subvert host agents. Eliminate agent fatigue and operational overhead with security built-in to the hypervisor and simply turned on.
Spotlight on Network Micro-Segmentation
What Are the Key Use Cases for Micro-Segmentation?
Enable Application Isolation
Secure your critical applications and shared services from compromises by auto-discovering application boundaries and applying application-level segmentation policies. Ensure policies stay up-to-date automatically as applications evolve or move.
Rapidly Deploy Network Segments
Quickly create and reconfigure network segments, virtual security zones, and partner domains by defining them entirely in software. Avoid the need to re-architect your network or deploy discrete appliances.
Achieve Zero Trust with Micro-Segmentation
Easily create, enforce, and automatically manage granular micro-segmentation policies between applications, services, and workloads across multi-cloud environments spanning VMs, containers, and bare metal infrastructures.
