The HIPswitch for Virtuals is a VM that serves as an identity-defined gateway to connect and protect datacenter servers, VMs, containers, and data securely and simply by creating a unified access control architecture. Peering and the micro-segmentation of private instances within and across data centers is now point-and-click simple, consistent across all environments, and easy to orchestrate.
Secure VM access control, workload migration, data backup, and micro-services integration can be orchestrated to automate peer-to-peer network connectivity quickly and easily without disruption. The HIPswitch for Virtual requires little to no change to existing infrastructure so you can rapidly join all servers, VMs, containers, and micro-services to private and segmented overlay networks in minutes.
Serving as the network boundary and security perimeter for protected workloads, the HIPswitch eliminates the complexity associated with traditional network and security methods. All workloads are cloaked and can’t be discovered or reached by unauthorized devices, eliminating the network attack surface. The plug and play design makes universal connectivity and segmentation across all networks simple, fast, and cost-effective.
