For Nutanix, security is a core component and driver in our vision of making datacenter infrastructure invisible. The Nutanix Security Development Lifecycle (SecDL) incorporates security into every step of the software development process, with a custom STIG, certifications, and compliance to meet even the most stringent security standards. You can read more about Nutanix’s baked-in security policies by downloading our security data sheet.
Looking beyond Nutanix’s core platform and native capabilities, we are incredibly excited to be working with alliance partners like vArmour who provide an enhanced layer of security for Nutanix with their Distributed Security System (DSS). vArmour’s software can be installed in minutes on top of Nutanix, and mirrors the distributed, scale-out architecture that makes Nutanix unique. As a single logical system composed of multiple autonomous sensors and enforcement points, vArmour’s DSS creates an intelligent fabric that microsegments and wraps around guest VMs running on Nutanix. Policies are then fully dynamic, and move in unison with VMs as they move around a cluster.
Today we are very pleased to co-announce a joint video featuring Nutanix’s CEO and co-founder Dheeraj Pandey, and vArmour’s CEO Tim Eades. Together, both company’s leaders explain why the partnership makes so much sense, how Nutanix and vArmour’s technologies are complementary, and what customers can expect from the two companies in the future.
Together, we are committed to delivering simple, secure, and scalable infrastructure for our customers. Stay tuned for some big announcements in 2016, and download our joint brief to find out exactly how Nutanix and vArmour work as a combined solution.
