Visit our VMworld talk on the Secure Software Development Life Cycle at VMware

If you are at VMworld next week and you are interested what we are doing to make our products more secure, come to our talk on VMware’s Secure Software Development Life Cycle (follow link, click "Content Catalog" and search on "secure"). The first part of the talk will spell out our security training, architectural reviews, security testing, code analysis, and the Product Security Policy. The second part of the talk will feature the security response activities and take you through a real-world disclosure scenario.

We hope to see you in room 301 at 2.30 pm on Tuesday September 1!

Are you interested in security and virtualization? We made a summary table listing the VMworld sessions on product security, compliance, hardening, secure architecture, VMsafe, and securing the Cloud.
