Welcome to the cutting-edge of cloud security.
Core Value: Secure your virtual data center against external threats.
Core Benefit: All the advantages of Cloud computing with less risk, by leveraging fault tolerance and high availability for unparalleled resiliency.
VMware vShield Edge protects your system at the periphery, where your cloud and network interfaces with the outside world (including the Internet at large).
As a virtual appliance, vShield Edge establishes a powerful wall between your cloud and the riskier world outside. In effect, it creates a virtual LAN without the complexity, difficulty or costs of a hardware solution. It works by isolating your virtual machines from the external network (port group isolation) and creating a secure gateway into/out of your virtual data centers. Easy and effective policy creation, even in multi-tenant cloud infrastructures, ensures granular and fine-tuned control of security policy enforcement.
Sharpen your VM security to a finely-honed edge.
Increase security at the edge.
First, create a barrier between the virtual machines and the external network. Second, lock down external access. Keep out threats with a firewall and dynamic traffic monitoring (e.g., NAT and DHCP services to monitor packet headers); and secure network gateways through VPN sessions.
- Stateful Inspection Firewall: monitor and control both inbound and outbound traffic with customizable rules based on IP address, ports and/or network communication protocol.
- Site-to-Site VPN: protect data and communications with a secure connection between external authorized machines and your virtual data centers.
Increase performance and scalability.
Manage inbound Web traffic with Web load balancing capabilities to keep server usage efficient while maintaining high availability of services and applications.
vShield Edge works in concert with vCloud Director to automate and accelerate provisioning. Administrators can obtain and monitor detailed resource utilization statistics, while enforcing full-featured policy management across multi-tenant cloud infrastructures.
Simplify IT compliance.
Detailed event logging uses the industry standard syslog format, and enables administrators to flexibly monitor and log the firewall, NAT, VPN, web load balancer and DHCP.
