“Cybersecurity today is very similar to the way parents approach child development,” declared VMware’s Senior Vice President, Security Products Group, Tom Corn, as he kicked off his showcase keynote at VMworld 2017 in Las Vegas. The keynote was designed to highlight VMware’s new security solution, VMware AppDefense™, and Corn’s analogy for explaining the current state of application security piqued the interest of his audience.

“A first child is treated like glass,” Corn continued. Anything and everything is a threat. Parents strive to set up a safe environment for their child. That starts at the hospital, with clear and focused rules for who gets into the nursery to interact with that child.

As Corn explained, this is not unlike the traditional approach to application security. But the last time organizations had an effective perimeter defense was when applications were monolithic stacks. Conventional firewalls and other “old school” security measures were sufficient, then. “But,” Corn said, “that hasn’t been true for quite some time.”

Corn continued his child-rearing analogy: As a child grows, the parents’ understanding of their child grows too. They learn when to stop chasing threats and calling their physician, or obsessively consulting WebMD about threats that don’t really exist. They learn what their pediatrician already knows, said Corn, “Some kids are hot, some not; some kids cry, some don’t.”

It’s when something really changes from their child’s normal state, that’s when they learn to call the doctor for help. And they learn that this partnership drives effective care.

This is the kind of security strategy needed today.
