Understanding the vGW Security VM

To gather and protect network traffic, vGW Security VMs are deployed on each ESX host to be monitored and secured. A vGW Security VM helps secure and monitor the ESX/ESXi host that it runs on, and it reports information back to the vGW Security Design VM.

You use the vGW Security Design VM to deploy vGW Security VMs. The vGW Security Design VM manages one-to-many vGW Security VMs. Administrators log in to the management server, configure security policies, and then deploy them to the vGW Security VMs.
