Security trends in a software-defined data center

Innovative IT shops looking to gain flexibility and  efficiency in the way they deliver IT are embracing the software-defined data center (SDDC). Typically this IT model involves compute, storage and networking pooled, aggregated, delivered and managed by intelligent, policy-driven software. Security must also be part of this software-defined mix, but is not well understood as the market is so new.

In this webinar, we’ll talk about what constitutes software-defined security (SDS) and the different approaches to it, the best practices for implementing it and some of the challenges to be aware of when embarking down this path.
