NSX Basics - Creating Firewall Rules Based on Active Directory User ID

NSX Manager can be integrated with Active Directory to allow Distributed Firewall (DFW) rules to be applied based on the used identity. In this video I will demonstrate how AD based security groups can be used with the DFW to allow access for the SSH protocol.

This functionality can be very useful within VDI environments where you may wish to apply more restrictive access to a set of users who login, for example external contractors. If you would like to know more about VMware NSX then please get in touch.
