VMworld 2020: Intrinsic Security Edition

VMworld 2020 for Security Professionals


Across the globe, organizations today face more uncertainty than ever. The pandemic has forced every industry – including retail, manufacturing, financial services, education, and healthcare – to transition to a new norm. And in the midst of this ongoing transition, organizations have had to prioritize security to deliver business continuity. As such, security remains as paramount as ever in VMware’s Future Ready Solutions, and we are continuing to evolve, refine, and innovate so our customers can maintain business resiliency.

In the past 12 months alone, we have completed exciting acquisitions such as Carbon Black, Lastline, and Octarine to help solidify our vision of Intrinsic Security and equip our customers with the right arsenal to keep their networks, workspaces, cloud, endpoints, and workloads secure. Earlier this year, we released NSX-T 3.0, designed to enhance the Service-defined Firewall by incorporating distributed IDS/IPS solutions to better protect east-west traffic in the data center. As recent as last week, we announced the general availability of VMware Horizon 8, with a strong emphasis on ensuring that the Blast Extreme protocol delivers the highest security when end users access virtual desktops and applications remotely on any network.

These are certainly major milestones, but this is just a glimpse into VMware’s commitment to helping customers build secure businesses for the new norm. At VMworld 2020, we will be unveiling new innovations, integrations, and upgrades designed to empower organizations for the ever-changing security landscape. There will be numerous sessions and demos covering an expansive range of topics, but if your priority is security, these are the sessions you should consider checking out.
