Desktop Security with NSX

Most organisations continue to spend most of their security budget on securing their server infrastructure, implementing things like firewalls, intrusion prevention/detection systems and SIEM solutions. The reason for this is that’s where they consider their most prized possession to be, their data. But is that the correct stance? More and more cyber-attacks now start with phishing attacks on end users, using end user devices as the entry point of the attack. In this video we take a look at some typical desktop configurations, their possible vulnerabilities and where we can reduce the chance of attack by employing some simple changes without impacting desktop performance with NSX.

NOTE: This video is roughly 20 minutes in length so it would be worth blocking out some time to watch it!

VMware NSX and the Data Center Network Evolution

Watch this short video from Gustavo Santana (author, VCIX-NV, triple-CCIE, and NSX SE Manager for Latin America) to understand how VMware NSX can positively influence on the architecture of physical data center networks. Here are some of the topics addressed by Santana:

* The evolution of data center networks from the 1990s to the 2010s
* Benefits and challenges of each evolution phase (STP-based, Multi-chassis, fabrics)
* An architectural perspective of VMware NSX
* A new proposed architecture for data center networks

The network virtualization revolution continues!

Using NSX to make a Virtualized DMZ

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.

How NSX Uses VXLAN

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.
