VMware virtualizes all network services into a converged best-in-class network security solution that combines complete visibility, rich context and distributed security controls to deliver comprehensive threat protection for users, applications and data wherever they are, across data centers and clouds.
Radically simplify security architecture with an all-software solution that moves at the speed and scale of business. Control traffic through segmentation based on applications and workloads, provide secure network access, and inspect all traffic for anomalous behavior and attacks while streamlining security operations across the enterprise.
Take advantage of tamper-proof security that is built into the hypervisor for superior protection and is specific to every application and workload.
Combine enterprise-wide insight into network traffic, threats, and centralized management to see and secure it all.
Fully distribute network security policy in software for scalable and ubiquitous east-west traffic protection, ensuring there are no blind spots and reducing architectural complexity.
Eliminate the throughput constraints typical of appliance-based firewalls and autoscale on-demand for massive traffic inspection capacity without impacting performance.
Benefit from the unique position in the hypervisor to gain the in-depth workload and network context needed to enable superior threat detection, faster forensics, and lower false positives.
Simplify administration across private and public clouds with consistent, centralized policies for operational consistency.
Dramatically reduce the attack surface by aligning security controls including world-class workload protection, intrusion detection and prevention, and web application firewall to east-west data center traffic.Analyst Study: To Enable Zero Trust, Rethink Your Firewall Strategy
