BENGALURU: At VMworld 2017, VMware has announced its breakthrough solution for securing applications running on virtualized or cloud environments – VMware AppDefense.
This new security solution is said to leverage the virtual infrastructure to monitor running applications against their intended state, and can detect and automate response to attacks that attempt to manipulate those applications.
Additionally, integrations with third-party solutions will enable a partner ecosystem to leverage VMware’s AppDefense application visibility and response orchestration.
AppDefense enables customers to improve the effectiveness of existing security controls. Endpoint security, security information and event management (SIEM) and Security Operations Center Analytics are able to integrate with AppDefense to gain unique application context, leverage the virtual infrastructure for remediation, and protect their own position on the endpoint. Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) are able to build new data center and cloud security offerings around AppDefense.
