VMware Cloud Security Capabilities

Software Security

With world-class security partnerships and an industry-leading Security Development Lifecycle process, VMware ensures Cloud operational and security controls are aligned with industry benchmarks and best-practices.

Data Security

VMware maintains stringent data protection standards, to ensure appropriate handling at every classification level, from processing and storage to transmission and destruction of data. Data in the cloud is a shared responsibility, and we define controls to ensure ownership and stewardship of customer organizational data remains with the customer.

Network Security

VMware Cloud solutions build on top of the base network security provided by our IaaS partners. Network environments are logically separated and protected by firewalls to safeguard business security requirements and ensure appropriate protection and isolation.

Identity and Access Management

Based on the principle of least privilege, VMware cloud solutions use identity and access management controls, ensuring the appropriate level of access for all personnel to keep your data and systems safe and secure.


Vulnerability and Patch Management

The VMware comprehensive vulnerability management program includes third-party vulnerability scanning and penetration testing across network, application and local operating system layers, helping you stay ahead of new and emerging gaps in security.

Operations Management

VMware Cloud solutions continuously collect and monitor environment logs correlated with both public and private threat feeds, to spot suspicious and unusual activities. This is supported by continuously updated contact with industry bodies, risk and compliance organizations, local authorities, and regulatory bodies to ensure new threats are apprehended rapidly.
