VMware Contexa™ sees what others don’t—from the user, the device, the network, the runtime to the data—powering VMware Security to stop threats others can’t.
The Strongest Defense for Your Multi-Cloud Traffic
No Blind Spots
Get complete network security coverage across all traffic flows and workload types with the Industry's only layer-7 distributed firewall and a software-only gateway firewall.
Simplify security operations with software-only firewalls that present an API-driven object-based policy model. Automate policy creation and deployment.
Achieve consistent firewall policies across all cloud environments and workload types. Regardless of where your workload lives or moves, your workloads will maintain their security policies.
Zero Trust with Better Security
Operationalize Zero Trust architecture in your infrastructure across multi-cloud with a modern software-based approach that’s easy to operationalize and scale.
NSX Firewall Network Security Products
Accelerate Enterprise Cloud Transformation
The inherent security on the NSX platform allows our developers and security experts to work together from the get-go, weaving cybersecurity into the very DNA of the network.
NSX has simplified the ability for us to segment those servers off into their own environment ... without having to make vast hardware purchases and additional firewalls and technologies.
Simplify Network Segmentation
Gain visibility on traffic and easily create network segmentation or virtual security zones with no changes to your network by defining them entirely in software. No need to deploy discrete appliances and hairpin traffic.
Micro-segmentation for Zero Trust
Get auto-generated policy recommendations based on an intrinsic understanding of application topology. Easily create, enforce, and manage granular micro-segmentation policies and leverage an object-based policy model for automation.
Granular Virtual Patching
Take advantage of IDS/IPS at every host to monitor your traffic flows, identify malicious traffic on a per-hop basis, and then apply virtual patching to ensure unpatched servers inside the data center cannot be exploited.
Advanced Threat Prevention
Leverage multiple detection engines - IDS/IPS, network traffic analysis, and network sandboxing - to block advanced threats from moving laterally, even across encrypted traffic. Get network detection and response that correlates events across all detection engines to identify intrusions.
