  • Speakers: Greg Brown, Dave Shackleford
Today's datacenter is changing rapidly. As more organizations implement virtualization and internal/external cloud architectures, the need to properly align and implement security controls is critical. For many reasons, the security platforms and software we've used in the past may not serve us as well. Performance concerns, compatibility issues, and a lack of introspection within virtual environments are major reasons why security tools need to adapt. In addition, moving into public clouds poses a major challenge to most organizations who cannot verify the state of controls in place for cloud-based systems or implement strong controls when needed. In this webcast, we'll discuss new trends and technologies enabling a more secure virtual datacenter, and also look at innovative ways that infrastructure and applications can be monitored and secured in external cloud environments.
