What Are the Key Use Cases for NSX?

Adopt Zero-Trust Security

Use the micro-segmentation capabilities in NSX to lock down critical apps, create a logical DMZ in software, and reduce the attack surface of a virtual desktop environment. Zero-trust security is now attainable and efficient in private and public cloud environments.

More on Micro-Segmentation

Speed Delivery of Networking and Security

Accelerate application delivery by leveraging blueprints to automate the provisioning and management of networking and security services consistently across all sites and clouds — or by exposing the infrastructure as code.
