At VMWorld VMware SVP of Security Tom Korn described the hypervisor and virtual network environment of a virtual infrastructure platform as the “Goldilocks Zone” for application security in the software defined data center.  He was right.  And with an innocuous and kid-friendly soundbite – “the Goldilocks Zone” – VMware served notice on the data center security industry that it fully intends to be the vendor of choice for ensuring the security of (private) cloud hosted applications.

This move ought not to surprise us.  Back in 2007 VMware opened up APIs for 3rd party security vendors, inviting security vendors to take advantage of the hypervisor to secure workloads.  But an ecosystem failed to emerge – in my view because neither VMware nor the vendors really knew how to take advantage of hypervisor based introspection, and because virtual switching was still very immature.
