Security Implications in Multi-Clouds
Organizations around the globe are being transformed by software and digital systems, radically changing the way businesses interact, operate and compete in the market. These changes are affecting all areas
of IT, especially the data center. Critical data is more accessible to all than ever before with the advent of virtualization, cloud and the emergence of multi-clouds—a mix of many best-of-breed public and private cloud services. With the adoption of multi-clouds, increases in consumer devices, and greater collaboration between business partners, the traditional perimeter has become porous, making the notion of a well-de ned perimeter gone and the traditional security controls that were designed to protect it, simply out of date. Organizations lack visibility of their users, applications, and traffic within and across clouds that cannot be monitored with their existing tools; they lack fine-grained and pervasive security controls that dynamically travel with the workload with simplicity; and they lack the ability to quickly and easily provision security to new workloads and applications without slowing down the business.
The vArmour Solution
vArmour addresses these data center security challenges by delivering the industry’s first distributed security system that provides application-aware micro-segmentation with advanced security analytics. Built in software, vArmour DSS Distributed Security System is architected to scale security across multi-clouds with deep insight and control of individual workloads. With its patented application-aware micro-segmentation capabilities, vArmour DSS moves security controls that were traditionally at the perimeter down next to each asset, wrapping fine-grained protection around every workload, regardless of where it resides. Workload-level visibility and control of inbound, outbound, and lateral traffic patterns from
vArmour DSS helps organizations detect and prevent application misuse, policy violations, and advanced persistent threats across complex multi-cloud environments from a single system.
