Adopt A New Approach to Visibility and Analytics at Scale

Data Center–Wide Security Visibility

Visualize and gain deep insights into all flows across the entire data center with stateful layer 7 inspection and complete workload context, eliminating security blind spots and accelerating security incident remediation.

Converged Security Operations

Reduce tool sprawl and improve collaboration between infrastructure and security teams by embedding security operations consoles, firewall policy recommendations, and management within the NSX UI.

Simplified Deployment Model

Eliminate the network overhead of duplicate packets and complexity of large, centralized appliances, with single-click deployment of a lightweight virtual appliance, and analytics that’s distributed and built into the hypervisor.

What Are the Key Use Cases for NSX Intelligence?

Automate Micro-Segmentation at Scale

Simplify operationalizing micro-segmentation with a seamless user experience that combines automated firewall policy recommendations, iterative policy workflows, and real-time visualization of application dependencies and security policies.

Demonstrate and Maintain Policy Compliance

Rely on a complete record of every flow, from every workload, with continuous analysis. Overlay policies against actual flows to highlight misconfigurations, policy exceptions, and non-compliant flows between workloads or security scopes.

Simplify Security Incident Troubleshooting

Get detailed drill-down topology visualization within the NSX console with complete inventory and meta-data of every workload, continuous layer 7 analysis of every flow without sampling, eliminating any blind-spots in security visibility.

Enhance Protection Against Lateral Movement

Proactively detect anomalous behavior in network traffic patterns with built-in detection for classic attack techniques such as network scans, exfiltration over alternate protocols, mismatched application layer protocols, etc.

Expand Your Virtual Cloud Capabilities

Deliver Intrinsic Security

Virtualize your entire security stack and gain protection that's intrinsic to your infrastructure.
