Data centers are adopting virtualized and cloud environments to gain operational flexibility and lower operational costs. These changes have led to a dramatic increase in network traffic going east-west, or laterally within the data center. However, when it comes to security, the focus has been on protecting the perimeter, and there are few controls to secure east-west traffic inside the data center.
This presents a critical security risk where threats can traverse unimpeded once inside the data center. Furthermore, traditional security approaches to this problem are unable to keep pace with the dynamic network changes and rapid provisioning of applications in a virtualized environment.
After scheduling this demonstration, a link with login and password will be sent. The link will launch Check Point's Tech Point environment. Follow the CloudGuard for NSX-T Lab Guide to complete the lab exercises. A reference NSX Demo Guide is also available. Both PDFs are at the bottom of this page.
