Traditional security architectures in physical data centres are highly complex. The network security relies on static machines and devices, and have limitations in a virtualized infrastructure. In contrast, software defined security is gaining traction due to its value of simplicity in the network security. The protection via software defined security is not tied to any special security device or server, it is based on logical policies.

As there is a rising concern among organizations for the security of their virtualized infrastructures, they are investing on software defined security for automation of their network security management. Although there is a low awareness among the organizations of the available solutions, and thus, requires efforts from vendors to promote the benefits of the solutions. In addition, there also is a lack of industry standards which is in the development phase.
