VMware, a leading innovator in enterprise software, on October 15 announced new advancements to its intrinsic security portfolio, giving Vietnam’s organisations the capabilities to better secure their business in the new digital reality – spanning the distributed workforce and across private and public clouds.
The expanded security portfolio advances security for the public and private clouds, security operations, and distributed workforce, enabling chief information security officers (CISOs) to intelligently manage and better secure access to any app, on any cloud, delivered to any device, as they build resilient and future-ready businesses.
According to VMware Carbon Black’s Global Threat Report, the global cyber threat landscape has escalated in the wake of COVID-19, with 91 per cent of global security professionals surveyed reporting that they had seen an increase in overall cyberattacks as a result of employees working from home. 32 per cent of global respondents found very significant gaps in their visibility into cybersecurity threats, while more than a quarter (28 per cent) of those surveyed felt that there are severe and significant gaps in terms of enabling a remote workforce. In this new hyper-distributed business environment, businesses need to rethink their approach to security to protect themselves from the growing sophistication of cyber-attackers, who are employing a more diverse range of tactics and techniques than ever before to extort, disrupt, and infiltrate organisations.
“Businesses in Vietnam have relied heavily on digital innovation to respond, adapt, and accelerate their businesses during this period of economic uncertainty and they must guarantee their long-term success through the focus on greater enterprise resiliency and security,” said Pham Viet Thang, country manager, VMware Vietnam. “VMware is committed to enabling businesses in Vietnam with our approach to intrinsic security, powering their transformation seamlessly and more securely as they step up innovation to enable sustainable growth in an ever-changing business environment.”
At VMworld 2020, VMware is delivering a range of solutions and services to help Vietnamese enterprises survive and thrive in one of the most turbulent market in generations. VMware’s cloud, app modernisation, networking, security, and digital workspace platforms form a flexible, consistent digital foundation on which to build, run, manage, connect, and protect applications, anywhere.
