VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger and one of his top lieutenants used the Interop keynote stage today to convince customers that virtualization can solve their network security problems.
Gelsinger and Martin Casado, creator of OpenFlow
and chief networking architect of VMware, were vague on the details but said that VMware’s NSX network virtualization software
will be at the heart of it. VMware wants to use virtualization to put new security capabilities into a “Goldilocks” zone somewhere between client devices and the edge of the network, Casado said.
