VMware and PacketMotion
ACQUIRED IN AUGUST 2011
PacketMotion delivers user activity context for data access monitoring and network segmentation, including PacketSentry Virtual Probe, which monitors and enforces identity based network access controls in VMware vSphere as well as rich user access monitoring reports for compliance.
VMware's acquisition of PacketMotion gives us the "who" part of our security and compliance solutions and lets our customers automate security and compliance policies with business-language rules. Extended visibility, control and compliance of critical applications and regulated data in the hybrid cloud are important components of our security solutions.
