VMware NSX doesn’t count where most critical: security

July 4, 2019

With VMware NSX, your data is being secured behind a simple firewall. This is your basic layer four firewall that will prevent specific IPs from talking to one another. What VMware NSX does not have is any type of deep packet inspection or layer seven security controls such as email filtering and classification, malware sandboxing, or IPS/ IDS. Without these features, your network is vulnerable to attackers who compromise systems by interacting with a genuine application through a genuine port.

Virtualization Defined - Eight Different Ways

whitePaper | October 4, 2021

Virtualization as a concept is not new; computational environment virtualization has been around since the first mainframe systems. But recently, the term “virtualization” has become ubiquitous, representing any type of process obfuscation where a process is somehow removed from its physical operating environment.

For example, mobile device emulators are a form of virtualization because the hardware platform normally required to run the mobile operating system has been emulated, removing the OS binding from the hardware it was written for. But this is just one example of one type of virtualization; there are many defi nitions of the term “virtualization” fl oating around in the current lexicon, and all (or at least most) of them are correct, which can be quite confusing.
