Threat Hunting and Incident Response in the New Threat Landscape – Carbon Black

Last December, the security industry was stunned by the magnitude and sophistication of the SolarWinds breach. Today, efforts are still underway to assess the impact of the more than nine-month-old cyberespionage campaign. While the task might seem daunting, looking for anomalies like SUNBURST in your data becomes easier with additional intelligence. Please join VMware Carbon Black for this Power Block session as they cover what normal looks like and how to find the abnormal, dig to the root cause, quickly respond and destroy on-going APTs, and set yourself up to automatically detect emerging threats like SUNBURST moving forward.

Ansible and vRA

In this webinar, we show the open-source power of Ansible, with the infrastructure management, and configuration of vRealize Automation.

Container Security with NSX-T

For environments that have a mix of bare metal, virtual machine, and container workloads security policy can easily sprawl across many different solutions. Using NSX-T for data center, we’ll demonstrate how to create a centralized security policy for all your workloads while still enabling application owners to interact with their apps as they’ve intended. Whether that is through Kubernetes network-policy objects, or simple virtual machine naming schemes, NSX-T provides a unifies fabric to apply all security policies as needed.

NSX-T Identity Firewall with Horizon Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

VMware’s NSX-T and Horizon solutions work in tandem with your identity services to deploy a robust and highly available virtual desktop infrastructure that is secured down to individual user identity. During this session, we’ll demonstrate the use case of using NSX-T as the networking and security platform to support a Horizon VDI deployment by linking user identity directly to security policy across the entire environment.

NSX-T Advanced Load Balancer for Multi-Location VDI

Dive into NSX-T Federation to deploy a resilient virtual desktop infrastructure across multiple sites while controlling ingress traffic using the NSX Advanced Load Balancer (formerly Avi networks). The NSX Advanced Load Balancer provides a definitive ingress point for your virtual desktop infrastructure across multiple sites to ensure optimal uptime for critical user connectivity and application access.

vRA and Terraform: More Powerful Together

When you add the functionality of Terraform with the customer engagement of vRealize Automation, you get a really powerful solution that empowers developers, and operations to manage and solve business issues quickly. This walkthrough will take a peek into how you can use both of these functions together to leverage the individual strengths for an agile solution for your customers.
