Transforming Cloud Datacenter Security for Business Mobility Using Smart Networking

Type:  White Paper
Length:  4 pages

Organizations that invest in proprietary applications and data for competitive advantage in their industries only succeed by making those investments available to employees, customers, and partners that drive revenue and opportunity. Securing those investments requires a fresh perspective as the types of devices accessing the cloud datacenter are changing rapidly and new workloads, such as VDI desktops, are appearing more regularly alongside server workloads. These changes alter the potential attacks and potential threats to datacenters whose security primarily stands firm at the perimeter, however, within the data center the security is weak.

By combining VMware NSX with the AirWatch Tunnel and/or VMware Horizon View, organizations are able to bridge the device to datacenter security gap in a way that both increases the overall security of the cloud datacenter and makes it far simpler to manage security through defining and delegating application and services to specific users. This enables IT to increase security while lowering the access and authentication burden on the users.
