A powerful shield that protects your private cloud with plug-in ease.
Core Value: Secure your applications from network based threats.
Core Benefit: More effective security that’s even easier to implement.
VMware vShield App monitors all traffic between virtual machines in your virtual data center enabling greater control and visibility over network communications. Administrators can flexibly create separate security and policy groups according to your organization’s needs. The net effect: improve performance and scalability, without the need for dedicated hardware or VLANs to defend against internal network threats or policy violations.
Dynamic, real-time protection.
Application- and change-aware, vShield App can accommodate dynamic traffic patterns and security policies. In other words, it can observe and adaptively respond to network activity to meet ever-changing internet security threats, ranging from botnets to user policy violations.
In addition, vShield App delivers the ability to enforce controls of network traffic at multiple points, including inbound/outbound connections through a hypervisor-level firewall that offers deep packet inspection and fine-tuned control based on source and destination IP addresses. A broad range of protocols for networking monitoring and security enforcement are supported:
- Sun Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
- Microsoft RPC
- TCP / UDP
- And more.
The power of VShield App enables your virtual data center to remain secure against attacks like botnets (with fine-tuned flow monitoring), wasteful resource allocation (with consolidated, controlled resource management) and inappropriate security access (with administrator-defined groupings of virtual machines).
Simple security management.
By increasing the transparency of network activity and traffic, vShield App can eliminate blind spots and close the door on security holes. Policy control is easy thanks to quick creation of security groups, automated flow monitoring and analysis of network traffic. Administrators can manage vShield App centrally through the user-friendly vShield Manager console.
Reduce waste and expense.
As a virtual appliance, vShield App offers the same advantages of cloud computing while bolstering security and data protection. You can eliminate both capital expenses like dedicated hardware to separate security groups. Optimize and consolidate resources to shed waste and security infrastructure “sprawl,” while administrators have granular control of who can access what.
