The Definitive Security Professionals’ Guide to VMware Explore

As the architectures used by your organization continue to rapidly evolve with the growth of multi-cloud environments, so do the security threats. At VMware Explore 2022 we strive to provide you with the tools and knowledge you need to harness the power of the cloud operating model and claim victory on the lateral security battlefield. 

To get the most out of this year’s event, we’ve put together a list of the top security-focused sessions. 

Must-See Keynote: Are Your Networking and Security Cloud Smart? 

The cloud operating model, driven by the increased adoption of modern apps and multi-cloud, provides the tailwind for better networking and security. Your networks should operate efficiently in a distributed architecture, and your security should see more and stop more attacks such as ransomware. But how can you effectively automate and operationalize networking and security to be cloud smart?  

Join Tom Gillis’ solution keynote and learn how VMware is enabling customers to implement Zero Trust across multi-cloud environments with zero appliances, zero tickets, zero taps, and zero disruptions.

1. Enforcing a Strong Zero-Trust Ransomware Defense

In a zero-trust world, you must assume that attackers are already in your network. These threat actors are living off the land, using legitimate pathways to start and progress their attacks. Increasingly, the attacker’s goal is to get into your network and stay there to explore, probe, eventually ransomware, and exfiltrate data. Join this session to learn about the strong and highly differentiated lateral security defense that sees more and stops more, finding and evicting threat actors before they do damage. Built on the principles of the cloud operating model, this solution delivers better security. 

Vice President of Product Marketing, Ambika Kapur, will lay out VMware’s broad portfolio that delivers effective and easy-to-operate security controls within a Zero Trust framework.

2. Defining XDR with Forrester and the XDR Alliance

Today’s cyberattacks are successful because an attacker’s activity is obscured. Bad actors lurk between the cracks of IT and IT security technology silos and workflows. When no one in the enterprise can see the big picture or make a data-driven enforcement decision, the attackers continue to persist in breaching our defenses. To combat these vulnerabilities, industries have begun to adopt extended detection and response (XDR).  

Attend this panel discussion with VMware VP of Product Management, Jason Rolleston, VP of Security Services, Christopher Kruegel, and Forrester to learn all about XDR.

3. Connect, Secure, Scale, and Operate Modern Apps Anywhere with CVS Health

This session covers strategies and solutions for hardening Kubernetes environments, protecting users, and keeping your data secure. We will also discuss how to leverage the VMware Modern App Connectivity Bundle to:

  • Protect users, apps and sensitive data for compliance
  • Secure all user-to-app communications
  • Secure communication in real time between every service with API security
  • Improve operational agility and streamline DevSecOps collaboration across multi-cloud environments

4. Innovation in Detection and Response: The Convergence of EDR and NDR

To win the battle against rapidly increasing sophisticated attacks, enterprises need innovative multi-cloud solutions that allow customers to connect and protect any workload in any location, delivered via software as a service. Additionally, security and IT teams need to see more to stop threats that others can’t. VMware is reframing traditional security analytics as enriched threat intelligence at a global scale while also helping enterprises overcome their networking management challenges. Hear from the VMware CTO and VP of Security Services on the latest innovations in networking and security.

6. Delivering Ransomware Protection with VMware NSX, VMware Carbon Black, and VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery (Almost Full)

Ransomware protection is the need of the hour. With one attack taking place every 11 seconds, it is imperative for organizations of all sizes and across all verticals to have a plan to fight back. Get holistic ransomware protection that’s built directly into the virtualization layer and achieve streamlined protection along with recovery across the five main cybersecurity functions. 

Join a discussion with VMware experts and customers to learn more about the breadth of our ransomware prevention and response capabilities.

7. The Future of Cloud Security

As cloud and Kubernetes usage become more commonplace, they need a fresh approach to security. Cybercriminals have more opportunities to exploit these environments to deliver destructive attacks, with many targeted at cloud workloads and containers. Organizations must stay aware of trends and challenges within cloud-native technology to make sure they understand how modern applications are being exploited. 

VMware helps cloud security, operations, and development teams address these risks and reduce opportunities for attackers to breach their workloads. In this session, you will learn a customer’s perspective on cloud risk and why it matters, as well as how to:
