Forget bolted-on, siloed networking and security products. Instead, imagine having a seamless, secure, software-defined networking layer from data center to cloud to edge. That’s what the VMware Virtual Cloud Network provides.
It simplifies your hybrid operations with an all-in-one cloud-model that extends intrinsic security and end-to-end policy consistency across your entire environment.
Connect and protect applications across your data center, multi-cloud, bare metal, and container infrastructure. The Virtual Cloud Network is built on VMware NSX, a complete L2-L7 networking and security virtualization platform that provides consistent, pervasive connectivity for apps and data across your clouds.
Secure your business, and detect and respond to threats, with intrinsic security across endpoints and clouds.
Built into the hypervisor, the VMware Service-defined Firewall secures east-west network traffic by leveraging deep visibility into workload behavior and stateful L2-L7 protection to mitigate risk, ensure compliance, and lower costs — all while vastly simplifying the operational model of firewalling every workload.
Empower network and application security teams to enhance your security posture, simplify compliance, and streamline security operations.
The Virtual Cloud Network includes VMware NSX Intelligence, a distributed analytics engine that’s built into the hypervisor, enabling efficient packet inspection, 1-click deployments, and converged security policy management. Together with vRealize Network Insight, NSX Intelligence helps you build an optimized and secure network infrastructure across hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
Reap the benefits of a modern network virtualization strategy for data center networking and SD-WAN.
Analysts at Forrester found that the average organization saved millions not only in initial CapEx for a comparable hardware-based system, but also in additional hardware costs in the years to follow. On the OpEx side, a typical enterprise was able to retire 37% of its existing servers — avoiding more than $1M in ongoing maintenance costs.

With business applications increasingly migrating to the cloud, enterprises are facing ever-increasing bandwidth requirements. Fortunately, software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) enables organizations to expand bandwidth across the network — while dramatically slashing connectivity costs and simplifying management.
Avoid the complexity and expense that comes with multiple networking and security platforms. Instead, leverage the Virtual Cloud Network for a unified L2-L7 stack that replaces purpose-built appliances. Get integrated management and security, consistent policies across clouds, and end-to-end analytics and troubleshooting.
