Rely on a distributed, scale-out internal firewall, built on NSX, to secure east-west traffic across multi-cloud environments. Gain superior protection against lateral movement of malware with stateful layer 7 security controls with advanced threat detection. VMware’s unique, intrinsic approach to security simplifies deployments and streamlines firewalling of every workload — at a fraction of the cost.

Gain superior ability to prevent lateral movement of malware inside the data center with the only stateful Layer 7 firewall built into your infrastructure. Operating from a unique position within the hypervisor, NSX Service-defined Firewall enjoys unmatched visibility into the network and unrivaled workload context to provide better threat protection while remaining isolated from the attack surface.
Enable security to move at the speed of development to deliver a true public cloud experience on-premises, decoupled from physical infrastructure constraints. Deliver “security as code” with an API driven, object-based policy model which ensures new workloads automatically inherit relevant security policies and automates policy mobility with workloads.
Eliminate the visibility and security blind-spots that result from misaligned controls across disparate solutions, and the selective traffic inspection that comes with appliance-based architectures. Demonstrate compliance by easily creating virtual security zones and complete Layer 7 security coverage for your sensitive applications and data.
Replace multiple application-based solutions with L2-L7 virtual controls built into the NSX platform, thus reducing CapEx by up to 60%. Radically simplify network deployment and operations by eliminating the need for changes to the physical network, complex traffic hair-pinning architectures, or agent management overhead.
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.More on Network Segmentation
Leverage stateful Layer 7 firewalling including AppID and UserID-based policies, and advanced threat protection at each workload to protect against ransomware and other attacks that propagate laterally within data centers.Read the Blog
