Micro-Segmentation for your Network and Applications
Learn about NSX security and micro-segmentation
VMware NSX enables application-centric security applied at a granular level to prevent the lateral spread of threats.
Evolving Micro-Segmentation for Preventive Security: Adaptive Protection in a DevOps World
Network security has changed significantly during the past several decades.
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.
Micro-Segmentation Use Cases for NSX Data Center
Enable Micro-segmentation with the Service-defined Firewall
NSX Data Center delivers the Service-Defined Firewall to protect your critical applications by combining strategies like adaptive micro-segmentation and process allow listing. The Service-Defined Firewall establishes a verified understanding of known good application behavior from which it generates adaptive security policies to shrink the application attack surface consistently, across on-premises and multi-cloud environments.
Secure Virtual Desktop Environments
Protect VDI environments by enforcing security policy at the virtual desktop and RDSH session level. Additionally, you can use NSX Data Center to manage virtual desktop network traffic with software-defined load balancing. This approach eliminates costs for additional load balancer hardware and simplifies management for VDI-generated network traffic.
Agentless Antivirus for Workloads
Boost workload performance and reduce management headaches by offloading antivirus agents to the hypervisor, using Agentless AV. When AV identifies a threat, automatically act using NSX Data Center.
