What’s the best way to keep your organisation safe from a constantly growing number of cyberattacks? How can you protect the modern apps you’re delivering; maintain consistent security across the multiple clouds you use; and safeguard the apps and data accessed through your employees’ preferred devices?
As you progress with your digital transformation, you might need to modify your approach to security. Traditional approaches are bolted on and overly complex, requiring the management of too many individual products. An organisation might own 70 to 100 security products, each with its own agent and management tool.
Traditional products are also too threat-centric, focused on blocking threats at the perimeter. They’re reactive, taking aim at what happened yesterday instead of protecting against what is happening today and anticipating what might happen tomorrow. Moreover, traditional products are not sufficiently aware of apps and infrastructure—the very elements they are trying to protect.
Today’s security should be intrinsic to your infrastructure. Security solutions should be built into the environment that needs protection, not applied as a layer on top. In addition, they should use contextual information to help prevent attacks. And they should help simplify management, unifying administrative tools and bringing together disparate security teams.
The infrastructure virtualisation layer sits in the ideal place to provide deep visibility into apps, data and endpoints. This layer cannot be compromised easily from within an app or operating system process.
VMware leverages the virtualisation layer to help you implement a zero-trust security model across all environments. This model helps reduce your attack surface while simplifying administration by minimising the number of products that need managing.
VMware Carbon Black Cloud and VMware NSX technologies are key parts of our zero-trust solution. They help protect data centre workloads, public clouds and endpoints. You gain visibility into network traffic and app behaviour so you can see and stop the types of issues that make the wrong kinds of headlines.
How do these technologies protect each element of your technology ecosystem?
Security is vital to your digital foundation. Adopt an intrinsic security approach to enhance agility and innovation while safeguarding assets and simplifying administration. ▪
