VMware NSX Network Virtualization Is the First Software-Defined Networking Solution to Have a Published STIG

VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), a global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, today announced that the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Risk Management Executive has released the VMware NSX® Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG), Version 1 for immediate use.

As the first software-defined networking solution with a published STIG, VMware NSX meets the security hardening guidance required for installment on Department of Defense (DoD) networks. The VMware NSX STIG provides the technical security policies, requirements, and implementation details for applying security concepts to NSX. Agencies within the DoD and other Federal Agencies can now deploy NSX with the STIG guidelines to bring IT agility and security to the data center to help save both time and money.

The VMware NSX STIG validates a new direction for federal IT networking security solutions toward SDN and the software-defined data center (SDDC). With NSX, DoD divisions can now virtualize and modernize their network infrastructure, and take advantage of the latest security and cloud technology innovations without necessarily investing in brand new hardware equipment. The STIG requirements confirm VMware NSX implementation is consistent with DoD cybersecurity policies, standards, architectures, security controls and validation procedures, as long as applicable NIST SP 800-53 cybersecurity controls are applied to all systems and architectures.

“DISA’s release of the VMware NSX STIG enables federal agencies powered by DoD networks to leverage our virtualization platform with the highest level of security, agility and efficiency,” said Bill Rowan, vice president, Federal Sales at VMware. “As software-defined data centers and networking become standard for both government and civilian IT teams, we’re honored that VMware NSX has set a historic precedent for STIG-approved networking solutions.”
