VMware Explore General Session Recap – Looking forward to an exciting week full of knowledge acquisition and networking, the event has begun with the General Session at VMware Explore in Barcelona. Basically, the keynote provides some very good techie announcements, but it needs to also apply more of a business perspective of how these deliver business value. If you’re in Barcelona for the big event and still have some space to fill in your schedule, be sure to meet Monaco Digital’s teams and talk about Cloud, Edge, Data Protection, and Security.

Whether you’re protecting a bank, highway users, or the local grocery store, certain common sense security rules apply. At the very least, you need locks on entrances and exits, cash registers and vaults as well as cameras pointed at these places and others throughout the facility or on the roads. The same goes for your network. Controlling access with tools like passwords, ACLs, firewall rules and others aren’t quite good enough. You still have to constantly monitor that these security controls continue to work across all of your devices so that you can spot strange activity that may indicate a possible exposure. With this blog post, we’ll go into detail on Security Operation Center (SOC) overview.
