The micro-segmentation use case includes a subset of the products that are part of VMware Validated Design for Software-Defined Data Center. 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.

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.

You can expand the environment from the use case to the full validated SDDC design.
