The design, implementation and deployment of modern network architectures, such as virtualization and cloud, continue to be a game-changing strategy for many organizations. Virtualizing the data center, migrating to the cloud, or a combination of both, have demonstrated significant operational and economic advantages. However, vulnerabilities within virtual environments are well-documented. New vulnerabilities are discovered regularly that yield serious security implications and challenges. To ensure application services are delivered safely, efficiently and in a scalable manner, while combating threats harmful to all parts of the virtual framework including virtual machines (VM), application workloads and data must be among the top priorities.
SonicWall Network Security virtual (NSv) firewalls help security teams reduce these types of security risks and vulnerabilities, which can cause serious disruption to your business-critical services and operations. With full-featured security tools and services including reassemblyfree deep packet inspection (RFDPI), security controls and networking services equivalent to what a SonicWall physical firewall provides, NSv effectively shield all critical components of your private or public cloud environments.
NSv is easily deployed and provisioned in a multi-tenant virtual environment, typically between virtual networks (VN. This allows it to capture communications and data exChanges between virtual machines for automated breach prevention, while establishing stringent access control measures for data confidentiality and VMs safety and integrity. Security threats (such as cross-virtual-machine or sidechannel attacks and common networkbased intrusions and application and protocol vulnerabilitie are neutralized successfully through SonicWall's comprehensive suite of security inspection services1. All VM traffic is subjected to multiple threat analysis engines, including intrusion prevention, gateway anti-virus and anti-spyware, cloud anti-virus, botnet filtering, Application Control and Capture Advanced Threat Protection multi-engine sandboxing.
