With the rapid increase in clever, innovative attacks by agile adversaries, even the strongest perimeter defenses can be breached, allowing attackers to gain access to the datacenter. Once inside, they can do reconnaissance, elevate privileges, and potentially access or exfiltrate highly sensitive data. The problem has only gotten worse as organizations move to more cloud-based applications and hybrid environments.
VMware has taken an automated, distributed, and enterprise-wide approach to preventing advanced threats. The solution is the VMware Advanced Threat Prevention, an add-on to its NSX Service-defined Firewall. It protects against advanced threats based on comprehensive network detection and response (NDR). It increases fidelity, reduces false positives, and accelerates remediation, while simultaneously reducing the amount of manual work that analysts must do.
