Micro-Segmentation for your Network and Applications

VMware NSX enables application-centric security applied at a granular level to prevent the lateral spread of threats.

Micro-Segmentation benefits of NSX Data Center

Complete Application Visibility for Stronger Policy

Simplify the creation of network security policies with NSX Data Center’s unique visibility into application composition. Identify all east-west traffic within and between applications, as well as the processes that initiated the traffic to help automate the creation of security policies and micro-segments.

Consistent Enforcement of Security Policy

Stop managing separate policies for different parts of the environment. With NSX Data Center, you can define and enforce a single network security policy across multi-data-center and hybrid cloud environments to secure traffic between VMs, containers, and bare metal servers, alike.

Adaptive Network Security Policy

Shift security from a reactive process to a proactive step in the application development lifecycle. Automatically provision security policies for each workload that will remain with the workload even as the application changes over time. When workloads are deprecated, so are their security policies -- decreasing policy bloat over time and further simplifying management.
