VMware NSX Micro Segmentation

What are your thought about the micro-segmentation feature?

Consultant with 51-200 employees
The microsegmentation feature is the reason why everybody wants to implement NSX. It's just awesome. I was impressed by it when I saw it for the first time. However, now that I see it everyday in production, it works perfectly.

The microsegmentation is a good feature. You can segment details, products, or hardware information.

Microsegmentation and automation are two features we have found to be most valuable. The micro-segmentation feature is a mature feature.

The microsegmentation is great, and the security team thinks it is great.
We use it for microsegmentation. We're still in the middle of the project. We have 70 or 80 apps to microsegment and have only done about ten so far. We have a long way to go.
It makes our life easier as far as PCI and auditing is concerned. We have been audited over the last few years, which has brought up concerns and issues. The easiest resolution for this was to put NSX into place and use microsegmentation. So, that's what we did.

The primary use case is micro-segmentation for other VMs, which should provide us great value.
The security part of micro-segmentation is getting more important.

Microsegmentation is important. We cap it depending on the compliance and regulations that are in the systems for every single company's requirements. It depends on the size of the customer but I don't see a reason not to use it. We cap it based on industry, size of a company, and the compliance revelations that the company requires. Also, we consider the nature of the industry although security applies to everybody. Some industries, take it more seriously than others because of their policies, rules, and regulations that they have to comply with. Ultimately, security is an issue that affects everybody and is important for all to have.

Information Security Manager at Anana LTD
The microsegmentation allows me to sleep at night. My job is reducing risk, plugging security holes, and working with the automated layer security. Even if somebody spins up a new server, it has to have a tag in NSX. Therefore, all the security rules are already applied across the infrastructure or automatically applied to new machines. It doesn't generate any new security holes if people have new products. It gives peace of mind that project managers are not screwing up my entire security posture.
Microsegmentation is incredible. It's the only way to go for managing networks long-term.

We are mostly using it for microsegmentation, which is very good. We now use it on a daily basis. Our clients are very satisfied that we can limit ourselves to NSX without the need to purchasing additional network systems and physical devices.

Microsementation is really powerful. With the existing networks of the legacy networks, we need to build a firewall between the segments in order to do microsegmentation but now having, for example, one VLAN connect to multiple VLANs, I can do micro-segmentation between the workloads even with the ushering the same segments.
