Micro-segmentation on VMware hypervisor
Micro-segmentation on a modern and legacy bare-metal servers
Non-VMware hypervisor compatibility (e.g., Hyper-V, KVM, Xen, KVM, Acropolis, etc.)1
Broad public cloud compatibility (e.g., AWS, GCP, Azure, Oracle Cloud, etc.)
Openshift/Kubernetes compatibility
1 VMware offers two NSX variants: NSX-V for segmentation within a single vSphere instance and NSX-T for hybrid cloud environments. This comparison focuses on NSX-T, which is the more practical NSX option for most organizations and the closest comparable VMware offering to Guardicore Centra.
MICRO-SEGMENTATION POLICIES
Basic segmentation (geo, environment, zone)
Network-level microsegmentation
(tier, workload, port)
