Network Security Business Unit Overview:

VMware NSX is a network virtualization platform that delivers the operational model of a virtual machine for the network. NSX is the flagship NSBU product at VMware. Virtual networks reproduce the network model in software, allowing complex multi-tier network topologies to be built and provisioned programmatically in seconds. NSX includes a library of logical networking services - network virtualization stack, logical switches, logical routers, logical firewalls, logical load balancers, logical VPN, virtual network devices, QoS, and distributed security.

A self-service interface allows users to build custom combinations of these services in isolated software-based virtual networks that support existing applications without modification or deliver rare requirements for new application workloads. Similar to virtual machines in compute, virtual networks are programmatically provisioned and handled
independent of networking hardware. Decoupling from hardware introduces agility, speed and operational efficiency that have transformed data center economics.
