VMware: How VMware AppDefense Enhances Security Across Clouds

Building on VMware’s foundational approach to cloud infrastructure and security, VMware AppDefense is a new solution that leverages the unique properties of virtualization to protect applications running on top of it. This new solution creates a least-privilege compute environment by capturing intended state of applications, and monitoring running machines against their intended state. AppDefense can detect and automate response to attacks that attempt to manipulate those applications, addressing a key challenges security organizations face from a constantly evolving and complex threat landscape.
