In my quest to learn a bit more about VMware NSX for Horizon virtual desktops I came across a few great resources I wanted to share. If your not familiar with VMware NSX you can get a good overview of this network & security solution here: VMware NSX for VDI. In order to further secure virtual desktops, NSX allows you to create rules and policies that are VM & user centric to control various levels of access to the users VM.
A lot has been talked about whether VDI is inherently more secure than a physical PC environment and the opinions vary. A great post a few years ago was hotly debated on this topic on BrianMadden.com and is worth a read.
However you look at it, the industry is evolving to help further secure virtual desktop environment’s and VMware NSX is one solution to help in that area.
A great overview of the solution is below. Another deep dive that I thought was great can be found here.
