Dynamic IT Environments Demand Heightened Security

All businesses are now digital businesses, and this digital transformation has led to significant changes to the IT landscape. Today’s IT organizations must secure interactions between users, applications and data, in an environment that is changing and becoming increasingly dynamic—from public and private multi-cloud environments to the proliferation of mobile devices.

From a security perspective, this creates a challenge: Traditional network perimeter security models are no longer sufficient for protecting the increasing sprawl of applications and users. And these challenges create much more complexity for organizations in ensuring and demonstrating compliance, with IT teams having to spend a significant portion of their time on compliance efforts, instead of focusing on tasks that drive real business value.

VMware helps IT organizations transform security by leveraging a ubiquitous software layer across application infrastructure and endpoints, maximizing visibility and context of the interaction between users and applications, aligning security controls and policies to the applications they are protecting, and enabling the insertion of third-party security services for additional intelligent protection. Transform Security initiatives include Secure Application Infrastructure, Secure Identity and Endpoints, and Streamline Compliance.

SECURE APPLICATION INFRASTRUCTURE 

Application infrastructure is changing from on-premises data centers and monolithic applications to include multiple clouds and distributed applications leveraging microservices. The traditional perimeter-centric network security model of the past simply does not provide enough visibility and control inside the data center. In addition, data at rest has become a much more valuable target for attackers. To address these problems the way application infrastructure is secured must be fundamentally transformed.

VMware helps IT organizations secure application infrastructure by abstracting infrastructure from the applications running on top of it. This provides context and maximum visibility into the environment. It also enables the encryption of data at rest and micro-segmentation to align security controls with applications.

SECURE IDENTITY AND ENDPOINTS 

Digital transformation has led to a proliferation of mobile devices. Android, iOS, Windows, MacOS and others are utilized to empower a workforce and re-imagine the traditional business workflow and processes. This presents a challenge for organizations, which is further complicated by the fact that most now support an enterprise mobility policy and BYO devices, with IoT usage also increasing in the enterprise.

VMware addresses this challenge by securing identity and endpoints via a ubiquitous software layer across all users and endpoint devices. This provides end-to-end visibility and control of the user and endpoint, extending from the user into the data center or cloud, without impacting the user’s consumer-like experience.

STREAMLINE COMPLIANCE 

The regulatory compliance environment has become increasingly complex, with more and more requirements being placed on organizations. All organizations are concerned with managing risk and maintaining continuous compliance, but this is particularly important for industries with strict requirements such as PCI, FISMA, HIPAA and more. The list of compliance requirements is almost endless, while the digital landscape and advanced persistent threats continue to evolve, creating a challenge for organizations in ensuring and demonstrating compliance.

VMware helps streamline compliance in an increasingly complex regulatory environment by providing a ubiquitous software layer across application infrastructure, identity and endpoints. In addition, IT can link software with hardware and regulatory controls with VMware’s Compliance Reference Architecture Framework.
