Many organizations implement desktop and application virtualization to improve security and deliver greater employee mobility. Centralizing desktops and applications protects data at rest, prevents unauthorized application access, and provides a more efficient way to patch, maintain and upgrade images. However, with desktop and application virtualization, new security concerns can arise behind the data center firewall—where hundreds or even thousands of desktops reside. These desktops sit in close proximity to other users and mission-critical workloads, requiring protection from attacks. These attacks can move from desktop to server, exposing a large attack surface within the data center. VMware NSX for Horizon effectively secures east-west traffic within the data center, while ensuring that IT can quickly and easily administer networking and security policy that dynamically follows end users’ virtual desktops and apps across infrastructure, devices, and locations.

In this webcast, you will learn:

  • The benefits of centrally deploying virtual desktops and apps
  • How centrally delivering desktops and apps boosts security
  • The benefits of micro-segmentation
