SECURING THE SOFTWARE-DEFINED DATACENTER

Software-defined datacenter (SDDC) security requirements

Security requirements for the software-defined datacenter

A new breed of security solution is needed to effectively protect the hybrid software-defined datacenter without hampering the benefits of agility, efficiency and flexibility it delivers. As industry-analysis firm Gartner® emphasizes in its 2018 Market Guide for Cloud-Workload Protection Platforms, “workloads in hybrid data centers require a protection strategy different from end-user-facing devices. Deploy offerings specifically designed for cloud-workload protection.” Read the Gartner report to learn best practices for securing datacenter and cloud workloads.
