Leverage Your Infrastructure to Secure Your Business

Build security into your infrastructure to turn points of vulnerability into points of security control. More effectively detect and respond to threats and expand visibility and controls to harden infrastructure and keep emerging threats at bay. VMware Intrinsic Security dramatically simplifies and strengthens your approach to security across any app, any cloud, and any device.

Harden device posture and user authentication with device-aware access management.

Ensure only the right users and compliant devices have access to apps by continuously tracking device state, user details, and authentication context.

What Are the Benefits of Intrinsic Security? 

Simplify and Focus Your Security Strategy

Organizations traditionally build infrastructure for general purpose use. Security teams are then tasked with protecting that infrastructure, the apps that will run on it, and the devices that will access it. The result is layers of complexity and enterprise security that's general rather than specific— too many products, too many tools, too many interfaces, too many agents. Security doesn’t need a new product, but a new approach.

Security Needs to be Built-in, not Bolted-on

Security Needs to be Built-in, not Bolted-on

Bolting on security means too many products, agents, and policy sets.

Build security into your infrastructure for an intrinsic security solution that helps you operate faster and more effectively, without relying on additional products, agents, interfaces, tools, or management overhead. Gain the context and visibility to better control security policies across heterogenous environments for protection that adapts to your business.

Unified, not Siloed

Security has been siloed for far too long, making it difficult to get a holistic view of threats and what you're trying to protect.

Security needs to be a team sport. Leveraging your infrastructure for security not only increases visibility into workloads and connectivity, but also fosters integrated defenses and active collaboration across IT and Security teams to keep emerging threats at bay.

Context-centric, not Threat-centric

Security has become centered around chasing threats and not understanding enough about the applications and infrastructure – what needs to be protected in the first place. And that has made security too reactive and too focused on yesterday's attacks.   

Architecting security into your infrastructure unlocks unprecedented visibility across apps, users and devices and allows you to focus your defenses, instead of reactively chasing an ever-growing spectrum of threats.
