Enjoy centralized policy management and granular micro-segmentation across your on-premises and public clouds — including virtual desktops deployed by VMware Horizon Cloud on Azure.
Ensure the health and compliance of applications across data centers and clouds by enabling end-to-end visibility of networking and security from a single pane of glass.
Manage both the security posture and networking of public cloud workloads using either NSX constructs or native public cloud constructs.
Gain advantage by leveraging familiar NSX and VMware networking and security tools. Integrate easily, be up and running faster, and drive operational efficiency.
Secure north-south traffic with stateful firewalling up to Layer 7 including application identification, distributed FQDN allowlisting, distributed IDS/IPS. Embedded on the NSX gateway, distributed across entire environment with centralized policy and management.
Use NSX tools for consistent security and networking policy enforcement across on-premises and native public cloud workloads.
Secure east-west traffic between application workloads with stateful firewalling up to Layer 7 including application identification and distributed FQDN allowlisting. Policies based on identity information from AD and other sources enable user-level security in RDS and VDI environments
Use a public cloud provider’s security and networking constructs for consistent security and networking policy enforcement across on-premises and native public cloud workloads.
Define security groups and rules based on rich policy constructs, such as instance name, OS type, Amazon Machine Image (AMI) ID, and userdefined tags.
Bring networking and security capabilities to endpoints across multiple clouds and, by integrating with NSX Data Center, enable networking and security management across clouds and data center sites.
Easily enforce security policies up to Layer 7— application identification and distributed FQDN allowlisting — not just to VMs, but also to native services in public clouds. Micro-segmentation policies automatically follow the workload when moved within or across clouds.
Transform your application security management with globally consistent policies. Define policies once and apply them to workloads anywhere. With NSX Cloud, security policies are dynamically applied based on workload attributes and user-defined tags.
