VMware Inc, a leading innovator in enterprise software, started providing its intrinsic security to digital infrastructure on Monday, thereby fast-tracking business innovation and resilience in Bangladesh.
Thus, it bolsters the capabilities of Bangladesh's organisations to better secure their business in the new digital reality – spanning distributed workforce across private and public clouds, reads a press release.
The expanded security portfolio advances security for 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.
"Businesses in Bangladesh 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 Md Yousup Faruqu, country sales manager of VMware Bangladesh.
"VMware is committed to enabling businesses in Bangladesh 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," he said.
According to VMware Carbon Black's Global Threat Report, the global cyber threat landscape has escalated in the wake of Covid-19, with 91% of surveyed global security professionals reporting that they had seen an increase in overall cyber-attacks as a result of employees working from home. 32% of global respondents found significant gaps in their visibility into cybersecurity threats.
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.
Additionally, VMware Carbon Black Cloud WorkloadTM will deliver advanced protection purpose-built for better securing modern workloads to reduce the attack surface and strengthen security posture.
The new solutions will deliver end-to-end zero trust security controls and simplified management - where Secure Access Service Edge, and industry-leading Digital Workspace and Endpoint Security technologies work harmoniously across any application on any cloud to any device.
The key benefits include greater visibility to Identify Risks and Strengthen Workloads; Better Prevention, Detection and Response to Advanced Attacks; and Simplified Operations for IT and Security Teams.
The distributed workforce introduces several challenges, ranging from employee on-boarding, visibility and compliance, security, employee safety and more.
In order to address these challenges and successfully embrace the future of work, organisations need to rethink how they approach security, experience and operational complexity associated with the IT environment.
