Virtualized Next-Generation Firewalls


The VM-Series is a virtualized form factor of our next-generation firewall that can be deployed in a range of public and private cloud computing environments based on technologies from VMware®, Amazon® Web Services, Microsoft®, Citrix® and KVM.

VM-Series: Next-Generation Security for Private and Public Clouds

The VM-Series is a virtualized form factor of our next-generation firewall that can be deployed in a range of private and public cloud computing environments based on technologies from VMware®, Amazon® Web Services, Microsoft®, Citrix® and KVM.

The VM-Series natively analyzes all traffic in a single pass to determine the application identity, the content within, and the user identity. These core elements of your business can then be used as integral components of your security policy, enabling you to improve your security efficacy through a positive control model and reduce your incident response time though complete visibility into applications across all ports.

In both private and public cloud environments, the VM-Series can be deployed as a perimeter gateway, an IPsec VPN termination point, and a segmentation gateway, protecting your workloads with application enablement and threat prevention policies.

Next-Generation Security for Your Virtualized Data Center

The VM-Series combines next-generation firewall security and advanced threat prevention to protect your virtualized environments from advanced cyberthreats. The VM-Series natively analyzes all traffic in a single pass to determine the application identity, the content within, and the user identity.

These core elements of your business can then be used as integral components of your security policy, enabling you to improve your security efficacy through a positive control model and reduce your incident response time through complete visibility into applications across all ports. 

 

Securing the Private Cloud

Defined as an environment in which you are responsible for the management of all aspects of the virtualization, hardware, compute, networking and security, a private cloud is often considered to be synonymous with your data center, and in fact, many data centers are 100 percent virtualized using VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V®, KVM or other private cloud technologies.

The VM-Series allows you to protect your private cloud infrastructure using application enablement policies while simultaneously preventing known and unknown threats. The VM-Series supports the following private cloud environments: VMware ESXi™ and NSX®Citrix NetScaler® SDX™Microsoft Hyper-V and KVM/OpenStack®.

 

Securing the Public Cloud

Defined as a ready-made compute, networking and storage environment, public cloud offerings, such as AWS®, Microsoft Azure or Google® Cloud, bring ubiquitous access to users, rapid scalability to address workload “bursts,” and infrastructure consistency. In a public cloud, ensuring your applications and data are kept safe from attackers is your responsibility, and that is where the VM-Series can help.

The VM-Series protects your public cloud deployment using application enablement policies while simultaneously preventing known and unknown threats. The VM-Series supports the following public cloud environments: Amazon Web Services (AWS)Microsoft Azure and VMware vCloud® Air™.
