VM-Series for VMware® NSX™ enables you to deploy advanced security policies within software-defined data centers (SDDC) to identify, control, and safely enable data center applications, as opposed to port, protocol and IP address-based policies, while inspecting all contents for known and unknown threats.
The integrated solution allows for the automated provisioning and deployment of next-generation firewall and advanced threat prevention, ensuring security stays in lockstep with your ever-changing virtualized infrastructure. You can centrally manage consistent security policies across north-south and east-west data center traffic with Panorama™ network security management.
As virtualized applications are instantiated, they are placed in security groups in VMware NSX manager, which are recognized by Panorama and the VM-Series. Security groups then become the basis of the advanced security policies that are deployed to each VM-Series.
