Speed and Security without Compromise


by Andrew Nielsen, CISSP, CISA, ISSAP, ISSMP, Senior Product Manager, Security Solutions, HPE

273c246.jpgA lot has happened since I blogged last month about “speed” and “security”. These two words are rarely, if ever, heard in the same sentence when it comes to traditional infrastructure solutions.  At that time, HPE had just announced its Hyper Converged 380 platform powered by Intel®. We also announced a partnership with vArmour to provide next generation security solutions on our next generation infrastructure—a combination of products aimed at powering today’s Idea Economy. Since then, HPE and vArmour have been hard at work deepening our partnership. 

Recently, our leadership team got together to discuss security challenges customers face when deploying hyperconverged infrastructure and hybrid cloud.  This meeting also included an in-depth discussion around the joint security solutions HPE and vArmour provide.

See Your Environment
To quote Mark Woolward, CTO of vArmour, “You can’t protect, what you can’t see.”  With HPE hyperconverged infrastructure and the vArmour Distributed Security System, customers will have unparalleled visibility into their software defined data center, both on-premises and in the cloud.  In addition to being able to identify bigstock--122769188.jpgthe application motions within your environment, customers can also take advantage of vArmour’s threat analytics platform that provides Layer 4 through 7 visibility far beyond traditional or retrofitted agent-based security technologies.

Segment Your Environment
vArmour’s native application-aware micro-segmentation technology creates logical policy groups that separate workloads based on their security and compliance requirements.  Micro-segmentation is a great fit for dense and potentially multi-tenant infrastructure like hyperconverged infrastructure by allowing different security requirements to peacefully coexist on the same infrastructure.

Secure Your Workloads Anywhere
Whether your hyperconverged infrastructure lives in a traditional datacenter, remote office/branch office, manufacturing facility or the hybrid cloud, the security requirements do not change and in many cases actually become more complex.  vArmour DSS gives you a single point of security policy creation across your environment that scales in real-time as infrastructure is provisioned.

We believe there is now a huge opportunity with HPE Hyper Converged 380 and the vArmour Distributed Security System to deploy modern and powerful security in real-time anywhere in the customer environment with unprecedented efficiencies.  The combination of software-defined security married with enterprise class hyperconverged infrastructure ushers in an era of unparalleled speed and simplicity without compromise.
