Getting Started with Threat Defense Virtual and Nutanix
The Cisco Secure Firewall Threat Defense Virtual (formerly Firepower Threat Defense Virtual) brings Cisco's Secure Firewall functionality to virtualized environments, enabling consistent security policies to follow workloads across your physical, virtual, and cloud environments, and between clouds.
This chapter describes how the threat defense virtual functions in the Nutanix environment with AHV hypervisor, including feature support, system requirements, guidelines, and limitations. This chapter also describes your options for managing the threat defense virtual.
It's important that you understand your management options before you begin your deployment. You can manage and monitor the threat defense virtual using the Secure Firewall Management Center (formerly Firepower Management Center) or the Secure Firewall Device Manager (formerly Firepower Device Manager).
