VMware Cloud service logically separates the network to restrict the customer access to their own private networks. The system and network environments are protected by a firewall to ensure business security, customer safety, and protection and isolation of sensitive data.

Firewalls restrict and control the network traffic and access to systems, data, and applications. VMware firewalls operate in compliance with the infrastructure security policy to support the protection of VMware information systems.

The Terms of Service and Data Privacy Addendums for VMware Cloud services establish a clear demarcation between the responsibilities of the customer and VMware regarding data protection. As a customer, you are informed about how the responsibilities are separated between you and VMware for compliance programs or data privacy rules.
