our company wants to use vcloud networking and security but now it is available just in vcloud suite and we do not need the whole suite, just need vshield. so what can we do now ? is there any alternative to vcloud networking and security in this case ?
Welcome to the community.
vCNS is available as part of VMware vCloud Suite, where it is licensed on a per-processor basis. You can also purchase it as a standalone product with a per–virtual machine licensing model.

Thank you for your answer but I have found this detail in here : VMware vCloud Networking &amp; Security: Software-Defined Network Virtualization | United States
that states only available as part of vCloud Suite 5.5
I think that document you have provided to me is old (2012)
Sorry my bad. Yes its not available as a stand-alone product now. When the product was launched there was a 0$ upgrade that was given for customers who owned vSphere enterprise plus license to vcloud suite standard.
If its Endpoint that you want to use you will still get it with vSphere enterprise plus licensing.
