VMware: The Principle of Least Privilege and Network Virtualization
This is the first in a series of three articles and videos featuring VMware’s Tom Corn, SVP, Security Products, and Shawn Bass, VP and CTO, End-User Computing, discussing security transformation and what it means for the future of networking.
Network security is undergoing a profound transformation. According to Tom Corn and Shawn Bass, it is a fundamental change that is being driven by issues with securing the interactions between users, applications, and data. These issues, they agree, are common to both the data center and the end-user computing sides of the security paradigm.
A primary challenge to both end-user security and data center security is the way the two have fallen behind the vast changes that have transformed both. On the end-user side, the massive amount of device proliferation, the consumerization of IT, mobility trends, and the emergence of cloud-based systems and services has made security, Bass says, “an incredibly complex problem to solve.” And, says Corn, the same is true on the data center side. The evolution of application architectures from static, monolithic stacks to flexible, component-based, distributed systems has made data center security far more complex.
