Arista has expanded its security software to let customers control authorized network access and communication between groups from the data center to the cloud.
The new software, Macro-Segmentation Service (MSS)-Group, expands the company’s MSS security-software family, which currently includes MSS Firewall for setting security policies across customer edge, data-center and campus networks. Additionally, the company’s MSS Host focuses on data-center security policies.
MSS software works with Arista Extensible Operating System (EOS) and its overarching CloudVision management software to provide network-wide visibility, orchestration, provisioning and telemetry across the data center and campus. CloudVision’s network information can be utilized by Arista networking partners including VMware, Microsoft and IBM’s Red Hat.
