Day Two of VMworld is in the books, and here's what our team of analysts have to say:
NSX 6.2 delivers key capabilities (e.g. spanning vCenter servers) to move micro-segmentation from dev and test to prodution, but also further complicates securing a hybrid world comprised of disparate infrastructures. Solutions which unify security policies across all things software-defined from public to private to micro-segmented are essential in making the hybrid world enterprise ready. Vendors such as Tufin, Catbird, and algosec offer solutions for consistent application-centric security policies from on-premises to public to virtualized. Right after visibility, such consistency is a must for securing the hybrid enterprise.
Historically, Airwatch and VMware EUC messaging and strategy was maintained separately. VMware significantly evolved its EUC and mobility corporate level narrative to include both EUC solutions with Airwatch at VMworld 2015. The company also made a conscious effort to highlight the value of the entire VMware platform with workspace delivery highlighting: core virtualization, SDDC, NSX and hybrid cloud orchestration and management.
