Securing your Software Defined Data Center with Micro-segmentation
Micro-segmentation through VMware NSX is helping organizations create a better data center security model, while also enabling them to keep pace with software defined trends.
East-to-West Traffic Vulnerability
Server-to-server traffic is growing and poses a larger threat than ever before.
The Problem: Today’s Data Center Security Model Focuses on Perimeter Defense
Even if you may have a strong perimeter defense, it’s not infallible, and breaches can still occur.
Attacks Continue to be Successful
External attacks make up 74% of security incidents over the last 12 months.*
Perimeter Security Falls Short
If a threat does breach the perimeter, it can easily spread within the data center.

The Answer: Micro-segmentation
Micro-segmentation, enabled by network virtualization, provides a new approach and better data center security model.
Creates the foundation for Zero Trust Networking where everything is assumed to be a threat.
Creates isolation and segmentation where workloads are secured from each other, and security policies are created for each VM within each workload.
Control and provisioning can be automated to ensure consistent and scalable security, easily managed by IT teams.
Traditionally, Micro-segmentation has Been Operationally Infeasible
With 1000s of workloads, micro-segmentation has traditionally been inefficient and cost-prohibitive.

OF ORGANIZATIONS USING NSX SAY IMPROVED SECURITY IS THE TOP BENEFIT*
Security Policies Aligned with Logical Groups
Create security policies that are aligned and applied to VMs in a security group.
Each Workload Has Its Own Perimeter Defense
Security policies and firewalls are attached to each workload, and move with them.
Faster Provisioning and Operational Efficiency
Automation ensures security is repeatable, flexible, and easily managed.
