Security that’s Designed for the Modern Data Center

Article | February 26, 2020

The last 12 months have been incredibly exciting for the security business at VMware. Last year at RSA Conference 2019, VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger outlined our Intrinsic Security strategy in his keynote presentation, “3 Things the Security Industry Isn’t Talking About”. We also announced the VMware Service-defined Firewall, a stateful Layer 7 data center firewall. As pioneers of micro-segmentation, the Service-defined Firewall extended our leadership in protecting east-west traffic in the data center. Later in the year, we announced two major acquisitions –Avi Networks and Carbon Black. The acquisition of Carbon Black brought to VMware an industry-leading endpoint security platform, and made the entire industry take notice of VMware’s intentions to transform security. With Avi Networks, we acquired a software-defined, elastic, and high-performance load balancer that comes equipped with a full-featured web application firewall (WAF). Maintaining the momentum in building out our security portfolio for the digital enterprise, we announced the VMware NSX Distributed Intrusion Detection and Prevention System which will bring advanced threat controls to the Service-defined Firewall.

Go beyond Docker with WebAssembly on the server-side

Article | February 26, 2020

Docker changed the way services and applications are designed, implemented and deployed. Before Docker, applications and services had to work cooperatively on the same machine. Sometimes they did, sometimes they didn’t. If something went wrong an entire machine, virtual or real, needed to be re-provisioned. It was an expensive and time-consuming way to go about application deployment. Nowadays, a Docker container thinks it’s the only process that runs on a machine. The result is that companies can run thousands of isolated containers on a single machine. Containers can also be created and destroyed at a moment’s notice to meet load demands. Docker opened a whole new movement in enterprise computing that’s both efficient and cost-effective.

VMware on Wednesday announced new versions of its NSX-T and vRealize Network Insight software that simplify network virtualization and improve network visibility and security. The two products, along with VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud, make up VMware’s Virtual Cloud Network, the company’s portfolio of software defined networking (SDN) technologies. It allows enterprises to deploy and manage network connectivity and security from internal data centers and branch locations to multi-cloud environments. While previous versions of NSX-T network virtualization and security software for data centers added support for public clouds and platforms that run containers on bare metal, the latest release, NSX-T 3.0, adds new networking and security features that improve the company’s vision to deliver a public cloud experience on premises, VMware executives said.
