Securing Shared Virtual Infrastructure With Virtual Firewalls

Date Added: Jun 2009
Format: Webcast

Enterprises and service providers are increasingly sharing physical hosts among multiple departments and customers, requiring strong isolation between virtual machines. The new VMware VMsafe APIs in VMware vSphere 4 enable virtual firewalls to deliver fine-grained policy control of virtual machine traffic and network segmentation in a shared virtual environment. Security solutions harnessing the full potential of VMsafe APIs can deliver high-performance isolation while enabling virtualization features like cloning, rollbacks and virtual machine migration. The presenters of this webcast will demonstrate a VMsafe firewall and how it integrates with VMware vSphere to enhance security in a virtualized environment.
