We continue to round out Network SecOps feature set and BNA 8.9 is now integrated with BMC Threat Director 2.2.

Take a quick look at the release highlights below.

Note that these will be integrated into CLM in a forthcoming CLM release, but available through APIs in BNA 8.9

  • Support for Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN)
  • Pods and Containers with NSX


Customer Experience and Supportability

  • Use proxy file server for configs and OS image file transfers
