Elevate Risk Management and Compliance
Reduce HIPAA & PCI Compliance Risk with VMware NSX
Change the way you secure the applications in your environment by enabling a zero-trust security model via micro-segmentation. Then go further: reduce the scope of compliance by isolating the systems that store, process or transmit sensitive data. VMware NSX enables a fundamentally more secure environment and helps to ensure and demonstrate compliance with many regulations, including PCI DSS, HIPAA, GDPR, FedRAMP, SOC, CJIS, DISA, STIG, and more.
Mitigate Risk, Drive Compliance
Achieve a Zero-Trust Security Posture
Deliver zero-trust security across data centers and clouds by leveraging micro-segmentation to enable granular protection at the VM level.
Drive Visibility and Context
Gain visibility across application infrastructure and data center endpoints, enabling validation of configuration and real-time state against regulatory controls.
Solve for Risk Fragmentation
Simplify security with security controls architected directly into the hypervisor.
Reduce Compliance Scope
Lower the scope of compliance and cut down overall audit durations by isolating the systems that store, process, or transmit sensitive data.

VMware Delivers Compliance for Key Regulations
NSX Data Center can be configured to operate in FIPS compliant mode with FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic modules. A FIPS compliance report helps configure and operate NSX deployments securely while adhering to prescribed FIPS standards. See NSX-T Data Center Compliance-Based Configuration for the list of cryptographic modules used in NSX-T Data Center that are validated for FIPS 140-2.
NSX Data Center for vSphere 6.3.0 has been tested for compliance with the EAL2+ level of assurance. Running a Common Criteria-compliant NSX Data Center installation requires that you configure NSX Data Center as explained in the document Configuring NSX for Common Criteria as part of the NSX Data Center Administration Guide.
This is an industry-wide accepted standard certification which tests and certifies products including anti-virus, firewall, IPSec VPN, cryptography, SSL VPN, network IPS, anti-spyware, and PC firewall products. Both NSX Data Center for vSphere Distributed Firewall and Edge Firewall are certified against ICSA Corporate Firewall criteria.
Other standards such as NIST 800-53, IRS 1075, and MARS-E are mostly related to processes, procedures, or policies with Access Control/RBAC and Auditing being the applicable sections to NSX Data Center. For specific product details, refer to: VMware Product Applicability for PCI DSS.
