Advanced Threat Intelligence and Detection

Enhance security functions through Nutanix Ready partner Palo Alto Networks. Nutanix allows customers to enhance your virtual network by inserting advanced security functions from Palo Alto Networks VM-Series into the Nutanix virtual network environment.

Capabilities and Use Cases

Application Visibility and Discovery

Security policy starts with a complete understanding of workload behavior. With a detailed visualization of network communication, creating secure policies for the environment is simple, straightforward, and well-documented.

Network Microsegmentation

Policy is the new network security perimeter. Microsegmentation is the key to the application of “Zero Trust” at the network level. Fine-grained network policy limits applications and users to ONLY their needed resources -  preventing the spread of malware or ransomware

Compliance

Establishing and maintaining a security posture across the enterprise requires specific network controls and continuous security auditing, real-time reporting, and easy vulnerability remediation

Virtual Desktops (VDI)

Enhance VDI security with an identity-based policy that ensures users gain access only to their data and applications

Test and Development

Isolate dev environments via network and security policy settings; dev systems are often not highly secure and can be an easy entry point into your enterprise
