The purpose of this document is to provide detailed design recommendations for integrating network security in the Enterprise intranet data center. This guide provides an overview of network and security device virtualization, describes how these features can be used for a more seamless integration of security, and summarizes considerations for securing a virtualized server environment.
The designs in this document provide examples of adding scalable security services to 10 Gigabit-based data center architectures. The products used to illustrate design options in this document include the following Cisco products:
Application Control Engine (ACE) Load Balancer
ACE Web Application Firewall (WAF)
Security Monitoring, Analysis and Response System (Cisco Security MARS)
