In this video we will discuss the NSX services platform capabilities, and the integration of security partners. After watching this video, you should be familiar with the security features of NSX and how the integration of security partners can augment those capabilities.
Learn how Network Introspection provided by NSX and 3rd party security vendors works with the OpenStack framework. This approach provides more insight and visibility into the application traffic, using the advanced service integration in NSX. For all of this to work, the security team needs to own all controls of the application security policies, which is a very common Enterprise model.
NSX is referred to as an “overlay” technology but what is actually doing the work on the back end to transfer that data back and forth? VXLAN is the unsung hero protocol moving data in and out of the virtual to the physical side of the house. Join Jimmy Ray Purser as he goes thru the basics of this standards based protocol and what you need to config on your physical network to enable it as well as how it interacts with other network devices.
Network and security operations traditionally have been handled by two different operations teams, although much of the same operations data is used, but differently on whether the operations team us troubleshooting a connectivity problem, or a security breach. Log data, traffic data, and API based data from the various different network devices are used by both Network and Security operations. vRealize Network Insight offers use cases for both teams, all from the same data collection sources. As an example Network Insight can determine if a virtual connection is trusted, blocked (secure or unsecured), misconfigure, or broken (network infrastructure) all within the same workflow.
Last week after an extended period of development and beta testing VMware released vSphere 6.5. This is a lot more than a point release and is a major major upgrade from vSphere 6.0. In fact, there is so much packed into this new release that there is an official whitepaper listing all the features and enhancements that had been linked from the release notes.
Network Virtualization is driving a new class of operations tools. vRealize Network Insight is a leading product in this area. Network Insight leverages the intelligence within NSX Manager, vCenter, IP Fix traffic data, and underlay routing, switching, and security data, for providing rich correlation in the areas of security analytics, network infrastructure troubleshooting, and path tracing between virtual machine. Network Insight is easy to install and configure, offering immediate out of the box recommendation regarding NSX deployment issues, traffic anomalies, and traffic visibility both east/west and north/south.
By Kyle Wassink This is part of a blog series on VMware vRealize Operations Manager Editions. The series breaks down the key aspects and differentiators between the three vROps Editions (Standard, Advanced, and Enterprise), including the critical components of extensibility and customization. The primary source of extensibility in vRealize Operations comes from Blue Medora’s True The post vROps Editions: Enterprise appeared first on VMware Cloud Management .
In this video I will go over the basic concept of micro segmentation within the datacenter. micro segmentation is a key feature of NSX and a common use case for customers as it allows distinct isolation between servers and their east / west traffic. This is not easily accomplished with traditional hardware firewalls, using NSX creating segmentation rules is simplified and manageable.
Need a more specific use-case to get started with Micro-segmentation and the NSX Distributed Firewall? Your DMZ is an excellent place to start! Why let your blast-area be the entire DMZ network – limit the scope of damage to each individual server. OS-level firewalls are great – but are subject to being disabled once the server has been compromised. NSX, with it’s point of control at the vNIC level, completely gets around that limitation to help reduce your exposure.
