Secure Digital Workspace for Dummies Guide

There’s no denying it. Technology is changing traditional work styles and the way businesses across industries manage systems. Meeting the computing needs of a single employee today is equivalent to meeting the needs of many.A majority of employees require access across a range of devices — desktop PCs, terminals, tablets, laptops, smartphones, and more. In some places, workers need web‐ or cloud‐based applications; in others, they also must have corporate application and email access. Then there are the networks. Should you provide full or partial access? Well, it depends. . . .Employees want a seamless experience across personal devices, as well as corporate‐owned devices, without IT configuration hassles. They also want to be confident that a secure divide exists between their personal and work data — in other words, Big Brother isn’t watching! The same with applications — from legacy to native mobile and cloud to virtual. Workers don’t care how these applications get delivered, but they do care that every application they need is available when they need it.How can your business support new identity‐defined workspaces across a variety of users — retail store associates checking inventory on a PC and a smartphone, hospital clinicians entering test results into a mobile workstation and an iPad, or financial advisors placing trades from Android devices and laptops?

Evaluator Group Report: Hyperconverged Infrastructure Study

Hyperconverged Infrastructures are an exploding market, one that’s projected to reach almost $4B by 2020 with a combined annual growth rate of sixty percent† . To date, the majority of adoption has come from the small-to-medium business category. While the potential for growth in the enterprise is significant, less attention has been paid to this segment of the hyperconverged market. So Evaluator Group undertook a study with the Storage Network Industry Association (SNIA) to explore how Enterprise IT is adopting hyperconverged technology. The objective of this study was to find out how enterprises are using hyperconverged infrastructure solutions, or plan to use them, and which products they prefer. We also wanted to know what IT professionals in these big companies thought about this new technology in general. We asked them what benefits they saw in these products, compared with traditional IT solutions, and how well they thought hyperconverged technologies fit in an enterprise data center, running “tier-one” production workloads.

Network Security Makeover with VMware NSX

Over the past several years, high-profile data breaches have continued to exploit a legacy approach to data center network security. While methods for data center attacks vary, security breaches generally have a common element: exploit the fact that within the data center, there are little to no security controls in place. Once attackers breach the data center, they are able to move laterally from server to server spreading their malware. Traditional approaches to securing data centers have focused on strong perimeter defenses to keep threats on the outside of the network. This model is ineffective for handling today’s new and evolving threats. Data center security strategies need a makeover and VMware NSX is the answer.

Protecting Citizen Data with VMware NSX and Horizon in a Zero Trust Environment

Jefferson County (Jeffco) is modernizing and automating its infrastructure and is PCI compliant. Within its SDDC environment, Jeffco is developing a Zero Trust model of security. Quickly self-deploying VMware NSX for micro-segmentation and multi-tenancy, Jeffco is also protecting more of its citizen data soon through its secure user, Horizon and NSX, solution for virtual desktops.

Network Virtualization and Security with VMware NSX

VMware’s Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) vision leverages core data center virtualization technologies to transform data center economics and business agility through automation and non-disruptive deployment that embraces and extends existing compute, network and storage infrastructure investments. Enterprise data centers are already realizing the tremendous benefits of server and storage virtualization solutions to consolidate and repurpose infrastructure resources, reduce operational complexity and dynamically align and scale their application infrastructure in response to business priorities. However, the data center network has not kept pace and remains rigid, complex, proprietary and closed to innovation – a barrier to realizing the full potential of the virtualization and the SDDCs. 

VMware NSX Micro Segmentation Benchmark

Many security products do a terrific job of making promises in their marketing material – only to be found critically lacking when they are actually put into service in a customer’s real infrastructure. In the information security space, customers who are looking for the proverbial “silver bullet” are often mistaken when they believe these advertisements. The underlying purpose of our review of the VMware NSX 6.2.x network virtualization platform was to sort out the facts from the hype, in an actual “micro audit”, where we could present representative E-W/N-S threats against typical network topologies (patterns) and scientifically measure the results. As stated in our “Objectives” section, we wanted to know if NSX functionally satisfied: the NIST SP 800-126 recommendations R1-R4; the defined precepts of micro-segmentation; and, could real-world threats be prevented, when launched using actual hacking/penetration testing tools
