Methods for managing an address on a switching device, managing an address on a network switch, and screening addresses in a cloud computing environment are provided. One embodiment is directed towards a computer-implemented method for managing an address on a switching device that is communicatively coupled to a plurality of virtual machines. The method includes accessing an address pool that includes an assigned address for each virtual machine from the plurality of virtual machines. The method includes determining, on the switching device, a used address for the virtual machine from the plurality of virtual machines. The method includes determining whether the used address is matching the assigned address for each virtual machine. The method also includes routing traffic from the virtual machine to a hypervisor in response to the used address matching the assigned address.
