1 Maximize VMware with EMC Align your information infrastructure from storage and backup, to management, security, and disaster recovery to accelerate the value of VMware.

2 Accelerate your VMware virtualization goals and reap the rewards A private cloud is a dynamic, flexible, IT infrastructure providing IT services on demand. It further has the ability to leverage external cloud service provider resources as an extension of your cloud resources. What s more, you define your information s service levels whether in the internal cloud or in the external cloud while maintaining control and security of your computing assets. In short, your organization owns the applications and data regardless of the location or ownership of the physical infrastructure. More important, since your mix of resources can change moment to moment, dynamic workload allocation resources are enabled when they are needed and where they are needed. Infrastructure can now be offered as a service enabling greater efficiency, control, and more choices than ever before. The first step in your journey to the private cloud vision is clearly to virtualize as much as possible, as fast as possible. EMC and VMware work closely together to ensure you have the solutions and services necessary to accelerate your data center virtualization projects and your journey to the private cloud. 2

3 A fully virtualized data center Virtualization has become a top IT strategy for one simple reason: business value. A fully virtualized data center the first step of your journey to private cloud brings simplicity and cost efficiencies to new heights. And it positions your IT infrastructure to quickly support the capabilities and scalability you need to keep your business agile and competitive. Early adopters of virtualization are experiencing first-hand the real advantages that VMware technologies bring to their IT environments. These successes have led to a growing interest in strategically leveraging VMware solutions across more of their IT infrastructures, their most mission-critical and data-sensitive environments, as well as their desktops.

10 Secure your virtual environment with solutions from RSA and VMware In virtual environments, information is particularly fluid and easily shared. While this has facilitated greater operational flexibility and efficiencies and enabled companies to greatly improve responsiveness to business needs, it has also raised concerns about data security especially in sensitive areas such as the desktop or in messaging environments. To help you maximize the advantages of virtualization anywhere in your data center without compromising security or compliance, RSA, The Security Division of EMC is building serveral security solutions for VMware virtualization. Based on an information-centric approach to security, these solutions will help you significantly reduce your security risks from desktop to server and beyond. Trust RSA and VMware to address your security and compliance issues Recognize the security implications of implementing virtual technologies and assess the security posture of a virtualization deployment through consulting. Extend enterprise security controls to virtualized desktops, data centers, and applications. Secure virtualization technologies and the management of virtual environments with industry-leading security solutions. Capitalize on the unique characteristics of virtualization technologies, and implement more effective and efficient security beyond what is currently possible in a physical environment. Take advantage of secure cloud computing and fully realize the compelling benefits associated with a secure infrastructure-asa-service model. Collaboration between RSA and VMware has resulted in the ongoing integration of RSA s industryleading security solutions such as RSA envision, RSA Authentication Manager (SecurID ), and RSA Data Loss Prevention (DLP) with VMware technologies to support authentication, data loss prevention, and compliance across virtualized environments. EMC Consulting s RSA Professional Services also offers the Security Assessment for Virtualized Environments, a comprehensive consulting engagement designed to provide the expertise and best practices to protect identities, data, and systems across your entire virtualized infrastructure. Joint development of solutions to support future advanced security functions for VMware vsphere 4 environments are underway, and delve deeper into data loss prevention, security information and event management, and strong authentication. How does RSA help? RSA envision is RSA s 3-in-1 Security Information and Event Management platform. RSA envision collects and analyzes log data from across the physical and virtual environment, including VMware ESX, VMware vcenter, and VMware View Manager. RSA envision reduces the cost of virtualization by lowering the risk of security breach or downtime and reducing the manual effort needed to monitor a virtual environment. RSA envision helps organizations: Increase security. RSA envision can alert when activities that are out of compliance with policy occur, like the cloning or moving of sensitive virtual machines to unauthorized locations. RSA envision can also provide visibility into the activity of users from the application layer right down to the virtualization layer. Streamline compliance. RSA envision can monitor and report on all activities across the IT stack, including the creation, cloning, and moving of virtual machines, as well as activities at the guest OS or application layer. RSA envision comes with pre-canned reports that map to common regulations like PCI, as well as common control frameworks like ISO and COBIT. Improve network operations. Because RSA envision captures all activity data in the IT environment, it can be an invaluable tool in alerting to failures in the IT environment like unexpected VM resets, or VMs consuming too much of a resource, or troubleshooting of a root cause. RSA Data Loss Prevention (DLP) monitors and controls the usage of sensitive data on virtual desktops to enforce security policy. RSA SecurID s two-factor authentication validates the identity of users and administrators before allowing them access to virtual desktops and VMware administrative interfaces. 10
