Enterprise Data Security for Today's Challenges

This session will examine the threat to existing interconnected business environment, and highlight best practices for data security. The focus will be on the critical role of cryptographic key management as the foundation for the deployment and enforcement of robust system security policies. We'll then walk through a customer case study to illustrate how the integration of Palo Alto Networks Next Generation Firewall and Thales nShield hardware security modules (HSMs) improved overall data security.

Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform with VMware NSX - Part 1

How do you accelerate the deployment of business-critical applications without compromising security? How do you define dynamic security policies to protect against advanced threats while keeping pace with data center virtualization? VMware and Palo Alto Networks have partnered to deliver a solution that combines fast provisioning of network and security services with next-generation security in the data center. In this lab, learn how to deploy the Palo Alto Networks virtualized next-generation firewall VM-1000-HV with VMware NSX to secure VM to VM communications.
