Open Security Controller

Enabling security for the software-defined data center

A new approach to software-defined security

Open Security Controller enables software-defined security by providing an abstraction layer between the security infrastructure and virtualization management of software-defined infrastructure (SDI) in the data center.

Centralize virtual and security management

Broker between orchestrators, software-defined networking controllers, security solutions, and management applications for dynamic and automated security provisioning, policy management, protection, and remediation.

Adapt to virtual workloads

Merge the performance and agility of SDI with the awareness and intelligence of the Security Connected framework from McAfee.

Next-generation intrusion prevention system (IPS)

Open Security Controller integrates McAfee Virtual Network Security Platform appliances within VMware NSX environments, providing IPS protection and compliance support for the data center.

Simple policy and enforcement management

A single controller communicates with multiple VMware NSX, VMware vCenter Server deployments, and McAfee Network Security Manager appliances, to synchronize policy management and enforcement.
