As more and more organizations are starting to realize, hybrid cloud is already happening and will continue to evolve as we strive to find better, faster and more efficient ways to store and share data. Not unlike the great cities of our world, we often see old and new side by side – the ancient architectures of yesterday nestled next to the futuristic glass skyscrapers of tomorrow.
When it comes to securing your on-premise and virtual environments it may seem like you’ve got it all figured out, but what happens as we move along the server evolution and bring environments like the cloud and containers into the mix? In an effort to be agile and cost efficient many organizations are using these new environments but may not have the protection to match.
We are very excited to announce the release of Deep Security 10 powered by XGen™ security. Deep Security 10 embraces the challenge of hybrid cloud, we see all of your environments as one harmonious environment, legacy and new working together to support your business – and that business needs to be protected.
The first step is visibility. With the new smart folders, applications that span different infrastructures can be treated as one using a smart attribute-based grouping system. Now you can manage applications across vastly different infrastructure platforms as if they were one, be it physical, virtual, cloud or hybrid.
Next, let’s talk about layered security. Deep Security 10 is powered by XGen™ Security, a blend of cross-generational threat defense techniques. Deep Security leverages server-centric threat defense techniques from tried and true technologies like intrusion prevention, anti-malware, and application control right up to the most leading threat defense techniques like sandbox analysis, machine learning and behavioral analysis to guard against the most sophisticated threats.
With new connected threat capabilities in Deep Security 10, organizations will gain centralized visibility across their environment, and be able to analyze and assess impact of threats. VMware customers can benefit greatly from comprehensive security designed to protect both NSX (including the new version 6.3) and non-NSX environments with layers of trusted advanced security controls. Not only enabling rapid response through shared threat intelligence and delivery of real-time security updates but also optimizing IT efficiency by reducing the number of false positives and focusing on real threats.
Deep Security 10 has at its core the support for flexible deployment, hybrid policy management and support for auto-scaling. We understand how to secure the long-standing physical servers, right up to the ephemeral servers living for mere minutes or even seconds in the cloud. No matter how you manage security in your hybrid cloud, Deep Security is designed to support the traditional IT security model or the latest DevSecOps.
Stay tuned for the general availability of Deep Security 10 this March, and be sure to check back here often for new updates and releases about your favorite hybrid cloud security tool for VMware!
