VMworld: Trusted Security in the Software Defined Data Center: Real-World Use Cases Across VMware Platforms
August 30, 2016 @ 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
We know by now that the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) automates provisioning and massively reduces time-to-market for applications and services. However, many organizations are still relying on legacy physical server security to protect their SDDC. When securing your hybrid cloud environments it is imperative that you incorporate a layered security architecture that includes anti-malware, IDS/IPS, firewall, integrity monitoring and log inspection to maximize protection against the next big attack. In this session, industry analyst Doug Cahill of the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) will host a discussion around proven security practices with a cross-section of industry leaders from organizations such as the University of Pittsburgh and Integra Networks. The panelists will provide insight into the value of a SDDC built on VMware NSX including how to extend the benefits of micro-segmentation with advanced security controls that enable elastic protection throughout the life-cycle of a VM. In addition, they will describe how they protect their virtualized servers, VDI desktops and cloud environments, all through a single integrated platform.
