NSX Advanced Threat Prevention Deep Dive

Presented by

Stijn Vanveerdeghem, Sr Manager, Technical Product Management, VMware

About this talk

Over the last year we've seen ransomware related incidents become more and more prevalent across organizations of any size and and industry, often leading to quick payoffs for malicious actors. At the same time, a number of sophisticated supply chain attacks have wreaked havoc and eroded trust. The average cost of a breach now exceeds $4M and an active attack lasts 200 days on average prior to detection. Legacy data center infrastructure, tools and processes are the key obstacles holding organizations back from achieving the security postures they need. With the distributed firewall, NSX has pioneered micro-segmentation, allowing customers to achieve any level of segmentation without hair-pinning or needing to make network changes. With Advanced Threat Prevention, NSX leverages that same architecture and augments it with complete flow visibility through NSX Intelligence, intrusion detection/prevention (IDPS), network traffic analysis (NTA), malware detection/prevention. This not only reduces the attack surface to a minimum but helps detect and prevent malicious activity such as malware downloads, command and control activity, lateral movement and exfiltration. This session will cover the NSX ATP architecture and what makes it unique. See an example of an advanced attack scenario and how VMware leaves attackers with no place to hide in the network.
