vShield zones

Today’s organizations in the Internet era are increasingly inter-connected for efficiency and productivity, while needing to maintain varying levels of separation and trust that reflect the complexity of their users, data, applications, and regulations. As virtualization permeates growing portions of the datacenter, network security devices require physical chokepoints that fragment shared resource pools and disrupt the vision of a seamless internal cloud. Current and emerging options are partitioning of a VMware deployment into logical organization or trusted network zones for security, privacy, and compliance. An overview of the new VMware vShield Zones can be used to collapse an Internet-facing virtualized DMZ (de-militarized zone), meet Payment Card Industry (PCI) firewall standards for cardholder privacy, create various isolated enterprise security zones or to isolate multiple tenants in the cloud.
