Safeguard the Cyber Security of your Business at VMworld 2018 Europe

Register today for VMworld 2018 Europe in Barcelona, 5-8 November.


The way enterprises secure their networks is changing. The advent of cloud and the rise of the application, coupled with the growth of end-user computing, has completely upended the firewall-led approach. As new cyber breaches and attacks make headlines on an almost daily basis, enterprises know they need to change the way they are approaching connecting, and securing, their business-critical systems and applications.

At its heart, this new approach focuses on a complete software layer across application infrastructure, networking, and endpoints. This means increased visibility of how applications are being used, better alignment of security controls and policies to specific applications, and also allows the use of third-party security services for additional, deeper protection.

This new take on security means IT professionals need to have a deep understanding of how the threats they face can impact their employers’ business performance. Do you feel prepared for the future of network and security virtualization?

To help our customers, partners, prospects and practitioners, we have developed a dedicated content track focused purely on networks and security at this year’s VMworld Europe, taking place on 5-8 November in Barcelona.

It is split into three sub-themes, looking at: secure application infrastructure; cloud networking; and branch and edge computing. These sub-themes incorporate over 70 sessions, panels and keynotes designed to educate, inform and empower attendees with the knowledge they need. As well as talking about the big concepts, each session will provide insight into how VMware is helping partners and customers tackle the new challenges they are facing, and how VMware’s solutions, such as VMware NSX, are driving enterprise security forward.

Here’s a sneak peek of some of our top picks from the Network and Security track:

The Future of Networking and Security with VMware NSX

As containers and native public clouds become increasingly prevalent, what does that mean for network virtualization? In this session you’ll find exactly what VMware is doing, including new insights into NSX-T, as well as how SD-WAN is becoming part of the NSX portfolio and how multi-cloud and security capabilities are being built in.
