What Are the Key Use Cases for NSX?

Adopt Zero-Trust Security

Lock down critical apps, create a logical DMZ in software, and reduce the attack surface of a virtual desktop environment using the segmentation capabilities in NSX. Zero-trust security is now attainable and efficient in private and public cloud environments.

More on Micro-Segmentation

Speed Up Delivery of Networking and Security

Accelerate application delivery by leveraging blueprints to automate the provisioning and management of networking and security services consistently across all sites and clouds — or by exposing the infrastructure as code.
