Attacks continue to be successful, taking a bigger toll
Traditional approaches to securing data centers have focused on strong perimeter defenses to keep threats outside the network. Once attackers are inside, it's diffcult to stop them.
Micro-segmentation is the answer
A better model requires an entirely different approach
Micro-segmentation enabled by network virtualization enables these key functions:
No communication across unrelated networks
Controlled communication within a network
Security with advanced services
Tight integration with leading third-party security solutions
Network virtualisation makes micro-segmentation possible
Micro-segmentation builds security into your data centre's DNA for:
- Improved Security
Micro-segmentation with VMware NSX™ can help stop the spread of malware within the data center
- Improved Agility
Because VMware NSX works in software, it enables faster delivery of networking and security services
- Improved Flexibility
Create more flexible, and even automated adaption to changing demands and security conditions
VMware NSX creates a virtual network with security policies tied to your virtual network, virtual machine and operating system
With micro-segmentation enabled by VMware NSX, your data center now has security infused into its operational DNA, so you can:
- Create security policies that mirror data center resources, and are not constrained by a physical network topology.
- Eliminate costs and ineffciencies of over-subscribing core links by keeping VMs on the same subnet
- Create a new VDI policy in minutes while maintaining your existing policies.
