Topsec vDFW-N

The Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) with VMware NSX network virtualization enables fundamentally more agile, efficient and secure data centers. Working together, VMware and Topsec have integrated their best of breed virtualization and advanced threat prevention technologies to enable the efficient delivery of applications and security assurance to realize the full value of Sofware-Defined Data Center architectures.  
The combination of Topsec vDFW-N which is a virtual appliance solution and NSX logically extends advanced threat prevention further into the data center fabric. This enhances NSX native microsegmentation capabilities to deliver advanced security services like FW, Application indetify, IPS, AV, QoS, Waf, Keyword filtering etc. wherever needed. In the event of a breach of a single node or segment of the network, the threat is easily and effectively contained and isolated. This distributed security architecture enables Topsec  best-of-breed network security services to be inserted at the vNIC level, for extremely granular control, enhanced visibility and superior threat prevention.
