Tufin provides unified network security policy management and visibility of the NSX-T, NSX-V, and the hybrid environment. IT and security teams can automatically apply and enforce micro-segmentation across all environments to ensure only trusted traffic flows are allowed.
Firewall security Policy violations are automatically detected and alerted in real-time for rapid mitigation. In addition, network changes are automatically designed for the most efficient and compliant access path, provisioned across all devices, validated, and tracked for audit preparedness.
Tufin integration helps VMware NSX customers achieve:
Learn more about how VMware NSX users can use Tufin firewall security policy automation solutions.
Transition applications to the SDN faster and safer, ensuring security policy remains intact and validate connectivity.
Design, deploy and manage microsegmentation across your on-prem network, the NSX SDN (either by IPs or Security Groups), and public clouds while ensuring business continuity.
Centralize management of security policies across all firewalls, routers, and switches throughout the entire data center via a single interface.
Automate network access changes, provisioning changes to the NSX Distributed Firewall and other NGFWs, legacy firewalls, and public cloud.
Increase business agility, reduce costs, and centralize security policy management for network virtualization through VMware NSX and the rest of your hybrid, multi-cloud network with Tufin.
Tufin consolidates and centralizes security policy management across VMWare NSX software-defined network environments, as well as physical networks and public cloud platforms. This provides holistic visibility into and control over your heterogenous physical network devices and cloud resources.
Benefits of using Tufin to manage VMware NSX Microsegmentation
Gain granular cloud management capabilities across virtual, physical and cloud.
Centralize the design, management and monitoring of segmentation policies across your hybrid network, including for VMWare NSX environments.
Visualize security policies and topology across physical networks and virtual environments.
Identify traffic an application uses and the existing legacy firewall rules that enable it.
Identify policy violations and gaps between what is desired and what is running across firewalls, routers, and security groups.
Improve network security by implementing security as close as possible to the application servers and data assets.
Design and operationalize security policies identical to the physical appliances that control the north-south traffic to the data center.
Tufin creates a unified security policy layer across the entire enterprise network and its data centers. Tufin has the broadest API integration across the security, networking and cloud ecosystems.
Improve your cybersecurity and internal workflows with VMware NSX. NSX service-defined, distributed firewalls (DFW) protect each virtual machine (VM) within a data center with its own firewall, which runs the entire set of security capabilities for any traffic going through the firewall. In helping to virtualize switching, firewalling, load balancing, and routing, NSX is helping organizations realize the full value of the software-defined data center.
Key benefits include:
NSX is suitable for use cases related to network security, multi-cloud networking, automation, networking and security for cloud-native apps.
There are two types of NSX platforms. NSX for vSphere (NSX-v) is specific to vSphere hypervisor environments and requires installation of the VMware vCenter. VMware NSX-T (NSX-Transformers) can be used in cases when NSX-v does not apply. NSX-T supports SDN for VMware vSphere as well as network virtualization for Kubernetes, Docker, KVM, OpenStack, and AWS native workloads.
Only Tufin provides automation and a unified security policy, from on-prem to cloud, across NetSec and DevOps.
