Data Center and Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) - Virtual Appliances
Virtual appliances provide next-generation firewall security and threat protection equivalent to hardware appliances. Virtual appliances help reduce the data centerís footprint and increase IT agility for faster deployments in both on-premise data centers and off-premise cloud environments.
Through network virtualization in a VMware software-defined data center environment, virtual appliances can be centrally managed and orchestrated to add advanced security functionality. In a software-defined networking environment, all traffic can be routed on-demand through virtual and hardware appliances for advanced security inspection.
