FireHost Selects VMware NSX to Innovate Unique Secure Cloud Services That Protect Healthcare, Payment and Other Highly Regulated Industries
Apr 27 15
VMware Inc. announced that FireHost is implementing the VMware NSX(TM) network virtualization platform as a key component of its highly secure cloud infrastructure. With VMware NSX, FireHost is enhancing its security posture by establishing a software-defined data center to deliver secure managed cloud services that protect companies in healthcare, payment, and other highly regulated industries. FireHost will leverage the built-in security benefits of VMware NSX-isolation, micro-segmentation, advanced security service insertion-to offer customers greater protection and reduced risk in a multi-tenant environment. VMware NSX isolates virtual networks from any other virtual network, and from the underlying physical network by default. With micro-segmentation, FireHost can programmatically provision network and security services and policies for tenant workloads, including segmentation and firewalling at Layer 2 and Layer 3, and enforce those policies at the virtual network interface This helps address the issue of threats entering the cloud and moving laterally (east-west) within the tenant environment, or even between two different tenants. Finally, through the VMware NSX platform's extensible support for third-party security services, FireHost can quickly add advanced security layers to meet various risk and compliance requirements for customers.
