Data center security tools are used to secure on-premise computing infrastructure located in data centers. These tools provide prevention, detection, and/or remediation tools for securing data center networks and server endpoints. They typically provide some level of firewall and security monitoring capabilities to stop threats and detect unauthorized access. Many data center security products come with various additional features for security-related tasks and compliance maintenance.
Companies use data center security software to ensure their networks and physical computing infrastructure remain secure and functional. Third-party infrastructure providers and companies with their own dedicated data centers will use these tools to ensure their offerings and services are delivered securely. Companies rely on this infrastructure to deploy applications, maintain websites, and host databases, and for hundreds of various additional computing purposes.
To qualify for inclusion in the Data Center Security category, a product must:
The vSRX offers the same features as our physical SRX Series firewalls but in a virtualized form factor for delivering security services that scale to match network demand. It offers the same features as the SRX appliance, including core firewall, robust networking, full next-gen capabilities, and automated life-cycle management. Handling speeds up to 100 Gbps, the vSRX is the industry's fastest virtual firewall.
TippingPoint integrates with the Deep Discovery Advanced Threat Protection Solution to detect and block targeted attacks and malware through preemptive threat prevention, threat insight and prioritization, and real-time enforcement and remediation.
VMware AppDefense is a data center endpoint security product that protects applications running in virtualized environments. Rather than chasing after threats, AppDefense understands an application's intended state and behavior, then monitors for changes to that intended state that indicate a threat. When a threat is detected, AppDefense automatically responds.
The Agilio OVS Firewall Software is designed to enable zero-trust stateful security in data centers using OpenStack-based automation. Agilio OVS Firewall Software, combined with Agilio SmartNICs, enable zero-trust stateful security while significantly improving server-based networking performance. Agilio OVS Firewall Software restores valuable CPU cores by offloading OVS and connection tracking (Conntrack) to Netronome's SmartNICs.
