Networking and Security

VMware Networking and Security Solutions

Networking and Security Across the Business Fabric

VMware networking and security solutions provide consistent, pervasive connectivity and security for apps and data, wherever they reside — from the data center to the cloud and the edge. 

NSX Data Center

VMware NSX® Data Center delivers virtualized networking and security entirely in software, completing a key pillar of the Software-defined Data Center (SDDC), and enabling the virtual cloud network to connect and protect across data centers, clouds, and applications.


Reduce your attack surface by bringing micro-segmentation and intrinsic security to applications built on VMs, containers, or bare metal servers, in private and public cloud environments.

Network Automation

Increase speed and agility by automating networking and security services entirely in software, empowering IT and developers to move at the speed of business by treating network infrastructure as code.

Multi-Cloud Networking

Streamline networking and security operations by bringing consistency across, data center, private clouds, and public clouds including AWS and Azure.

Cloud-Native Apps

Deliver native networking and security for containerized workloads that brings consistent and automated policy across application frameworks, platforms, sites, and clouds.

Consistent Security Across Clouds

Define a security policy once and apply to workloads anywhere – across virtual networks, regions, availability zones, and multiple private data centers and public clouds.

End-to-End Operational Control and Visibility

NSX Cloud provides standard interfaces and APIs to plug into your existing operations tools to enable deep, end-to-end visibility for monitoring, troubleshooting and auditing across data centers and clouds.

Precise Control Over Cloud Networking

Control cloud networking topologies, traffic flows, IP addressing, and protocols used within and across multiple public clouds.

Single Pane of Glass Visibility

NSX Cloud provides a complete inventory view across all accounts, regions, subscriptions, VPCs, and VNets and operational status of every VM to enable quicker troubleshooting.

Multi-Cloud, Multi-Site Networking and Security

NSX Cloud brings networking and security capabilities to endpoints across multiple clouds. By integrating with NSX Data Center, it enables networking and security management across clouds and data center sites.

Distributed Architecture & Micro-Segmentation

A distributed firewalling architecture eliminates additional network hops and traffic because policies are enforced at the virtual network interface of each instance, rather than routed through an external firewall.

NSX Cloud provides granular control over East-West traffic between application workloads running natively in public clouds and on-premises Data Center. NSX Cloud also enables micro-segmentation of virtual desktops that are deployed by VMware Horizon Cloud.

Shared Gateway in Transit VPC/VNet, Security Groups, & Edge Firewalling

Gateway consolidation in transit VPCs / VNets results in simpler administration, faster onboarding of compute VPCs/VNets, and enables selective routing of traffic for service insertion via third-party appliances.

Security groups and rules can be defined based on rich policy constructs, such as the instance name, OS type, AMI ID, and user-defined tags.
Stateful firewalling filters North-South traffic flowing between instances in virtual networks and the public Internet.
Dynamic Policy & RESTful API

Security policy is automatically applied and enforced based on instance attributes and user-defined tags. Policies automatically follow instances when they are moved within and across clouds.

RESTful API and automation tools help to programmatically provision and configure networking and security infrastructure on-demand.

Site-to-Site VPN & Traffic Visibility with any SIEM tool

Built-in VPN support to encrypt traffic between on-premises and public cloud.

Use any existing Day 2 operations tool to gain real-time visibility into traffic flows and firewall logs within and across virtual private clouds.

NSX Cloud

VMware NSX Cloud provides single-pane-of-glass visibility, rich networking capabilities, consistent security policy, granular and operationally scalable micro-segmentation across the hybrid cloud network. NSX Cloud currently supports Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS public clouds.

Application Security Software – AppDefense

Bolster Application Security with VMware AppDefense

VMware AppDefense is a data center endpoint security product that protects applications running in virtualized environments. Rather than chasing after threats, AppDefense understands an application’s intended state and behavior, then monitors for changes to that intended state that indicate a threat. When a threat is detected, AppDefense automatically responds.

Application-Centric alerting for the Security Operations Center (SOC)

AppDefense doesn’t produce a lot of alerts, but when it raises the alarm it’s smart to listen. The authoritative alerts generated by AppDefense coupled with automated response capabilities allow the SOC to focus on catching and eradicating threats from their environment, rather than sifting through noisy data and investigating threats that aren’t there.

Transforming Application Security Readiness Reviews

In the world of modern application development, applications are launched, changed, and decommissioned rapidly. By the time a security team learns of the existence of a new application, it has often already changed. AppDefense creates a common source of truth between application teams and the security teams, streamlining the security review and readiness process.

Understand Intended State of Application

From inside the vSphere hypervisor, AppDefense has an authoritative understanding of how data center endpoints are meant to behave and is the first to know when changes are made. This contextual intelligence removes the guesswork involved in determining which changes are legitimate and which are real threats.

Respond Automatically with Precision

When a threat is detected, AppDefense uses vSphere and VMware NSX Data Center to automate the correct response. AppDefense can automatically:

  • – Block process communication
  • – Snapshot an endpoint for forensic analysis
  • – Suspend or shut down the endpoint
Application Security Software – AppDefense

Because AppDefense is installed in the vSphere hypervisor, it has an isolated, protected environment from which to continually monitor data center endpoints. This reduces the chance of AppDefense itself being compromised.
