• Company outlines vision for security in the Software-Defined Data Center
        • Product and partner demonstrations in Booth #1615 to showcase growing security portfolio
        • New PCI-DSS 3.0 and FedRAMP reference architectures to be presented

Throughout its history, RSA Conference has consistently attracted the world’s best and brightest in the security field, creating opportunities for attendees to learn about IT security’s most important issues through first-hand interactions with peers, luminaries and emerging and established companies.

At next week’s conference, VMware will take an important step in outlining details of its vision for advancing security for the software-defined data center. During major periods of IT architecture change, security has often been relegated to an afterthought. But as we enter the Era of the Software-Defined Data Center, security is being designed into the foundation of the architecture from the beginning. If you’re attending the show we invite you to join Martin Casado, our CTO of networking, and Tom Corn, VP of Security Strategy, for a presentation titled, “The Goldilocks Zone: VMware’s vision for security in the Era of the Software-Defined Data Center.” Casado and Corn will detail why the hypervisor represents the ideal place to optimize security by providing the perfect place for delivering for both application context and physical isolation. This is a must attend for executives, CISOs, ISVs, press and analysts attending RSA Conference 2014. The session is on Monday, February 24 at 1pm PST in Moscone West, Room 2022.
