It’s clear that virtualization is having a huge impact on security technology, especially in the software-defined data center (SDDC). Virtualization offers increased ability to segment, monitor, and secure specific applications and data flows.
The SDDC will offer more flexibility in adding security functionality. Traditional security appliances and tools are often linked to specific hardware devices that cannot be moved. Virtualized security solutions are better able to match the fluidity, scale, and cost-efficiencies cloud environments. They will be used to future proof the SDDC.
At SDxCentral, we’ve been exploring the future of virtualized security and what it means for the SDDC. What can you expect to see in the security of the SDDC? Watch for the following developments:
- More controls over specific applications, such micro-segmentation use cases, which can be used to reduce attack risk.
- Programmability, orchestration, automation, and even machine to add intelligent, “self-service” capabilities within their security infrastructures.
- More encryption solutions – including application-specific encryption rules and management.
- SDDC auditing and compliance controls, including rules for how data is stored in specific data center geographies.
- Security management that extends across clouds – enabling you to control data and applications whether they traverse public, private, or hybrid clouds.
HyTrust and Intel will take a look at many of these topics in a joint webinar hosted by SDx Central. You will hear from Ravi Varanasi, general manager of cloud security solutions at Intel Corporation and Ashwin Krishnan, senior vice president of product management for HyTrust. Both will share their expertise and insights on what is required to build a secure and compliant software-defined data center.
Join us on March 10th at 10:00am PST and get educated on the steps to a secure and compliant SDDC!
