This Half Day Workshop at the Hospital Club on the 25th of January, 2018 will focus on NSX, VMware’s Network Virtualisation & Security Platform, and it’s integration with both Checkpoint and Trend Micro. The below is the agenda for the day and lunch will be provided.
1. NSX 101 Technical Overview
This will be an interactive, white-boarding session to introduce the capabilities of NSX. We will cover all the NSX features and capabilities (logical switching, routing, firewalling and load balancing), how these translate to the 3 main use cases: Automation, Security & Application Continuity, as well as real examples of how other customers of ours have benefited from it. Security being the primary use case, you’ll learn about the concept of Micro-segmentation (Zero-trust security) within the Data Centre, how we work with our ecosystem partners and integrate with Advanced Security Services, such as IPS or IDS to achieve better security, and simplify operations, speed up service delivery.
2. Planning Micro-Segmentation with vRealise Network Insight
Are you looking at ways to modernise the way you secure the inside of your Data Centre, get better visibility and control, perhaps preparing for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)? Are you looking for ways to speed up application deployment, eliminate manual, error prone and lengthy processes to deliver network services to the business? Micro-Segmentation has become a popular way of addressing these questions, something you’ll learn about during the first half of day. Delivering Micro-segmentation within your Data Centre is easier said than done. The purpose of the second half of the day is to introduce a platform that will help you planning micro-segmentation and give you better control and visibility over your physical and virtual estate.
3 / 4. Checkpoint and Trend Micro’s Integration with NSX
This will be made up of 2 sessions presented by technical representation from both Checkpoint and Trend Micro. They will cover how their business’ are being seen as an increasingly important aspect of the ecosystem of vendors linked with VMware NSX. This will largely focus on the technical integration of their portfolio in helping to achieve the use cases associated with NSX.
