The micro-segmentation use case includes a subset of the products that are part of the full VMware Validated Design. The use case provides a validated platform for an environment that uses micro-segmentation. That platform enables you to secure all workloads by using NSX for vSphere distributed firewalls and security groups. Expansion of the environment from the use case to the full validated design is supported.

Micro-segmentation includes core products that support dynamic security based on attributes. This functionality is part of the NSX for vSphere product offering. However, the use case is a fully tested implementation of all listed product versions.
