VMware Carbon Black Cloud (FedRAMP High) Next Generation Anti-Virus 

Being the victim of a cyberattack that leads to a data breach or disruption of service is a primary concern for federal agencies, with the quantity & quality of threat actors only continuing to grow. With the rise of ransomware and cyber warfare efforts, there’s a real need for federal agencies to find a way to combat cyberattacks to minimize the attack surface even as their perimeter widens.

In most cyberattacks, the real damage isn’t done in the initial breach, but rather when adversaries find a way to persist in the network and spread between systems. With the increased distribution of users, applications, and data centers around the world, traditional perimeter-centric models & tools are no longer an adequate defense strategy.

In the face of these threats, agencies need to take a new approach to cybersecurity that includes enhanced firewalling, integrated intrusion detection and prevention systems, and AI-driven remediation responses that allow you to truly protect the heart of your network.

With VMware Carbon Black Cloud’s recent FedRAMP authorization, this solution provides a great opportunity to consolidate multiple endpoint security solutions down to a single agent and console.

Register for our weekly demo to learn more about how VMware Carbon Black can help you protect your federal agency with the highest-caliber, next-gen cybersecurity on the market!

VMware NSX Security

Public sector agencies are constant targets for cyberattacks from all sides – individuals, activist groups, and even nation-state-level coordinated campaigns. The White House, seeing this, has published mandates that require government agencies to segment their networks, shrink their attack surface, minimize lateral threat proliferation, and reduce risk. 

VMware NSX Security gives agencies all the tools needed to segment and secure virtual and physical workloads without the need to alter the underlying physical networking. This solution allows agencies to create vNIC-level firewalls that intelligently block traffic by factoring in the application generating traffic, the identity of the user, the origin & destination network or IP address, and even virtualization-level context like VM names or tags. All this combined with hypervisor-level network virtualization gives agencies a tremendous level of granularity when it comes to network security. 

NSX now offers IDS/IPS functionality with the Advanced Threat Prevention offering, allowing for even more robust security. Easily and quickly identify anomalous network traffic with the Intrusion Detection/Prevention appliance and eliminate the need to hair-pin traffic to discrete appliances for analysis with VMware’s purpose-built lateral threat detection capability. 

Join our weekly demo to learn more about NSX Security and how it can be used to strengthening your network security posture.

VMware Cybersecurity: Advance Your Cybersecurity with VMware Carbon Black Cloud

VMware Carbon Black Cloud is a cloud-native endpoint, workload, and container protection platform that combines the intelligent system hardening and behavioral prevention needed to keep emerging threats at bay, using a single, easy-to-use console. By analyzing more than 1 trillion security events per day, VMware Carbon Black Cloud proactively uncovers attackers’ behavior patterns and empowers defenders to detect and stop emerging attacks. 

VMware Carbon Black Cloud allows your organization to:

  • Modernize Your Endpoint Protection: Legacy approaches to prevention leave organizations exposed. Cybercriminals constantly update tactics and obscure their actions within common tools and processes. You need an endpoint platform that helps you spot the minor fluctuations that hide malicious attacks and adapt prevention in response.
  • Go Beyond Traditional Endpoint Security: Most of today’s cyberattacks now encompass tactics such as lateral movement, island hopping, and destructive attacks. Advanced hacking capabilities and services for sale on the dark web compound the issue. These realities pose a tremendous risk to targets with decentralized systems protecting high-value assets, including money, intellectual property, and state secrets.
  • Recognizing the Good, the Bad, and the Gray: While other endpoint security products only collect a dataset related to what is known bad, VMware Carbon Black Cloud continuously collects all endpoint activity data because attackers intentionally try to look normal to hide their attacks. This solution will help your organization analyze attackers’ behavior patterns to detect and stop new attack methods.
  • Simplify Your Security Stack: VMware Carbon Black Cloud consolidates multiple endpoint security capabilities using one endpoint agent and console, cutting the management headaches and console thrashing required when responding to potential incidents. Minimize downtime responding to incidents and return critical CPU cycles back to your organization.

VMware SD-WAN: Connect to the Cloud from Anywhere & Help Combat Covid-19

VMware SD-WAN is the application of software-based network technologies that virtualize WAN connections. This solution decouples network software services from underlying hardware to create a virtualized network overlay. Enabling the connection of users anywhere to applications, SD-WAN offers easy of deployment, central management, and assured application performance.

Check out the use-case resources below to learn more about how VMware SD-WAN has helped combat the Covid-19 pandemic with pioneer healthcare technologies.


VeloCloud Use Case 1: Working from Home 

In-office employees must transition to working from home and acclimate to using standard home-use broadband, often sharing it with partners, kids, or other family members. For those in the healthcare field, this is no different, where doctors must now conduct their appointments virtually and monitor their patients’ health from within their own homes. With VMware SD-WAN, doctors and patients can now seamlessly continue their virtual sessions.


VeloCloud Use Case 2: Pop Up Test Clinics

Drive-by testing facilities are popping up to test greater portions of the population. These pop-up facilities require connectivity to the cloud in order to access patient records. Often, there is not convenient connectivity or a circuit anywhere near these tent locations. Using VMware SD-WAN, healthcare workers can simply use an LTE-enabled SD-WAN appliance or one with a USB port connected to a Cradle Point LTE device to connect to the internet and gain reliable and secure access to the cloud and hospital datacenters.


VeloCloud Use Case 3: Auxiliary and Overflow Health Facilities

Many healthcare organizations in the United States are considering non-hospital facilities to house sick patients once all hospital beds are in use. These auxiliary facilities require connectivity to the cloud in order to access patient records. VMware-SD WAN is an ideal fit for these facilities, as SD-WAN is easy to deploy, requires no trained staff to install, and can be brought online in minutes.

VCPP – VMware Cloud Provider Program

The VMware Cloud Provider Program (VCPP) is a unique, utility based, OpEx model that allows service providers to gain access to all of VMware’s core solutions within the U.S., with production support included. This program differs from the typical perpetual model, as it eliminates the need for predetermining license requirements with large up-front costs to aid in removing the risk of sunk costs if those licenses are not utilized.

VCPP provides two routes to market. The first is license rental, in which a service provider will utilize VMware licenses to build their own hosting environment. The second method is to provide specialized services on top of VMware’s cloud hosted solutions to fulfill the requirement of providing Tier 1 and Tier 2 support.

Within VCPP, license rental consumption is monitored on an hourly basis and billed monthly for what is powered on. VCPP utilizes a points-based model, which is a unified metric of consumption that is multiplied by usage metrics for a total calculation to simplify monthly reporting. VMware’s fundamental products (vSphere, vCenter) are bundled together and billed based off an average GB of vRAM for virtual machines that are active in production. Those virtual machines receive a 50% reservation, and the max GB of billed vRAM is 24GB.

The VCPP program aids in consolidating procurements, as points can be used for license rental, professional services provided by VMware, or for VMware’s cloud hosted solutions. The program also streamlines the contract management process, as all VMware’s core solutions are provided through a singular contract, with a unified end date.
