TechnoLab Session, Thursday, March 29 in Montréal—Make the Move to VMware NSX

PCD Solutions and VMware are hosting the TechnoLab Session event—Make the Move to VMware NSX—at the CONTINUUM Innovation Centre on March 29. The event will consist of technical workshops, whiteboard exercises and demonstrations designed to demonstrate the new possibilities offered by the NSX solution and the VMware SDDC (Software-Defined Data Centre) approach.


Make the Move to VMware NSX – Security and Micro-segmentation


Companies are constantly being exposed to new forms of cyberattacks. The frequency and impact of these attacks are on the rise. Such attacks have a direct effect on a company’s operations, reputation, and the relationship of trust it has with its clients.


As companies start to integrate even more of their activities and data exchanges into the cloud, a review of current security management practices becomes essential in order to take advantage of greater agility, speed, and efficiency when faced with security issues. More importantly, we need to anticipate, prevent, and simulate these types of attack by putting in place next-generation defense mechanisms.


In this first TechnoLab Session focusing on Security and Micro-segmentation, we will explain how the move to NSX offers a whole new approach to security management that is now “software-defined.” This session is tailored to the interests and questions of the people in charge of architecture, IT operations, VMware, network and/or security.


This session will enable you to:

  • Master the notions and concepts NSX introduces with network virtualization
  • Understand how this new approach works and the possibilities its provides
  • Explore the main issues addressed and the solution’s specific use cases
  • Discover the benefits of the NSX solution for your own business and operations group
  • See how the SDN (Software-Defined Networking) trend is already transforming the entire industry
