vArmour collaborates with VMware to help customers create and enforce accurate policies based on observed application behavior
vArmour, the API-driven cloud security company, today announced support for VMware NSX-T Data Center in the vArmour Application Controller, providing security operators with consistent compliance and enhanced security controls across hybrid and multi-cloud environments. In the face of growing compliance and security pressures, the vArmour and VMware partnership enables customers to build and control sensitive applications across hybrid clouds with confidence.
The vArmour Application Controller, powered by Conform technology, simplifies security and compliance across multi-cloud environments. Conform links security and compliance policy requirements to public and private cloud. With support for NSX-T Data Center, vArmour Application Controller can manage key compliance use cases for NSX-T Data Center environments:
- Compliance Policy Creation: Computing and maintaining compliance policies aligned with major compliance frameworks including PCI, GDPR, SWIFT CSP, NIST, etc.
- Continuous Compliance Measurement: Moving away from the painful and manual annual compliance process to a continuous measurement and monitoring of conformance with key security and compliance policy intents.
More than $1.3 trillion in IT spending is expected to be directly or indirectly affected by the shift to cloud by 2022, according to Gartner. This shift underscores the urgent need for compliance and security solutions that protect data and applications that are increasingly being sprawled across public and private cloud environments.

We’re excited to be partnering with VMware to enable mutual customers to more easily secure and maintain compliance for critical applications and data across multi-cloud.”
