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.
Leveraging the Network Infrastructure
VMware AppDefense takes advantage of the application visibility the virtualization layer provides to enable what Tom Corn, VMware’s senior vice president for security products calls “an intent-based security model.” That model focuses on what the applications should do—the known good—rather than what the attackers do—the known bad. “We believe it will do for compute, what VMware NSX and micro-segmentation did for the network; shrink the attack surface and create a more actionable security model.”
