This presentation shows a quick demo how VMware NSX can integrated with VMware Horizon (Desktop solution) and create a powerful firewall based on user identity.
We create an Active directory user and we place this user on a security group, we create a firewall rule to allow access to a server base on the security group was previously defined. They way VMware NSX works is using Guest Introspection. Guest Introspection is deployed on ESXi clusters where IDFW virtual machines are running. When network events are generated by a user, a guest agent installed on the VM forwards the information through the Guest Introspection framework to the NSX Manager.
VMware NSX creates a powerful solution to secure your environment and built Zero trust network even for your virtual desktop infrastructure.
