vRealize Infrastructure Navigator offers strong network security to protect sensitive corporate data. The vRealize Infrastructure Navigator plug-in leverages the vCenter Server for authentication and eliminates the user management requirement.

vRealize Infrastructure Navigator uses PostgreSQL as the database and other individual process that are limited to a single virtual appliance. This limit reduces the vulnerability of the system by allowing the components to perform inter-process communication on the local protected channels.

vRealize Infrastructure Navigator uses the SLES, SuSEfirewall2 firewall. vRealize Infrastructure Navigator requires certain TCP ports to be open for proper operation of the product.

vRealize Infrastructure Navigator has some sensitive files that must be protected from unauthorised access as that might compromise vRealize Infrastructure Navigator security.

It is important that measures are taken to ensure that installation files are valid and that communication between the vRealize Infrastructure Navigator virtual appliance and the vSphere Web Client are secure.
