VMware vRealize Network Insight 3.5 – Feel the vRNI
vRealize Network Insight 3.5 (vRNI) introduces a number of great features, which improve our visibility and ability to ensure a secure and compliant configuration. Also Network Insight is now available as a service. This means you can rely on VMware to handle management and updates of Network Insight, with the same great feature set you enjoy when running vRNI in your datacenter. From an architectural standpoint, the main difference between Network Insight in your datacenter and the Network Insight service is the placement of our platform and proxy instances. With the Network Insight service, you only need to deploy a Proxy VM to start collecting flows and other data from your datacenter. If your goal is to focus on AWS entities, a proxy VM isn’t required. Just register for the Network Insight service, enter your AWS credentials, setup VPC Flow logs, and you are good to go. You can read more about the process from our VMware Cloud Services onboarding webpage.
PCI compliance is a focus for many organizations. With that in mind, we are introducing a new PCI compliance dashboard. The dashboard focuses on portions of PCI DSS relevant to networking and security operations. The goal is to assess compliance for your NSX environments. Accessing the PCI compliance dashboard is very straightforward. Click the Security icon, select a scope, and you will receive detailed information on the disposition of associated entities. Entities include VMs and security groups plus relevant firewall rules, flows, and changes through a PCI lens. Frequently assessed entities can also be saved as a search and pinned for quick access.
