Virtualized Firewalls

The VM-Series supports the exact same next-generation firewall and advanced threat prevention features available in our physical form factor appliances, allowing you to safely enable applications flowing into, and across your private, public and hybrid cloud computing environments.

Automation features such as VM monitoring, dynamic address groups and a REST-based API allow you to proactively monitor VM changes dynamically feeding that context into security policies, thereby eliminating the policy lag that may occur when your VMs change.

The VM-Series supports the following virtualized environments:

  • VMware® ESXi™ and NSX™
  • Citrix® Netscaler SDX™
  • KVM/OpenStack (Centos/RHEL, Ubuntu®)
  • Amazon Web Services (AWS)
