Data center zero-trust stateful security can provide enhanced security for east-west traffic within the data center, implemented closest to VMs and containers. It provides the following advantages:
Automated provisioningEasily move/add/change policy for workloads in VMs and containers
Distributed enforcement at every virtual interface
In-kernel, scale-out firewalling performance through distribution
Used with every hypervisor and baked into the platform
Through offload and acceleration of the vSwitch and Linux Netfilter Connection Tracking (Conntrack), the zero-trust stateful security datapath via the Agilio SmartNIC and software solution improves performance while freeing up vital CPU resources to applications running in VMs and containers.
