Securing and Unsecuring Virtual Machines using the vGW Security Design VM

When you configure installation settings using the Install Settings section in vGW Applications Settings section, you can specify whether VMs should be secured automatically.

After you install the vGW Security VM on a host to secure it, the vGW Security Design VM allows you to manually secure virtual machines (VM) on that host or remove them from the protected network. Removing a secured VM from the protected network is referred to as unsecuring the VM.

To secure a VM that does not belong to the Secured Network:

  1. In the vGW Security Design VM Settings module vGW Application Settings section, select Installation.
  2. In the Unsecured Network pane, select the VM that you want to secure. Click the check box in front of its name.
  3. Click Secure.

    As it secures the VM, the vGW series displays a window to report status. If the VM was successfully secured, the window reports that securing the VM completed successfully.

  4. Click Close.

    The vGW Security Design VM displays a process symbol that dynamically indicates that the VM is being secured with a firewall and moved into the secured network. The VM is now protected, and it appears in the Secured Network pane.
