Showcase Keynote : Connect and Protect your Business with the Network of the Future
Come to this session to hear Callum Eade, Vice President, SDDC, VMware Asia Pacific & Japan, share the latest roadmap on innovations for the Virtual Cloud Network, VMware’s vision for networking in the digital age. Business today is moving at hyper speed. Applications, services and data are becoming more distributed and today’s infrastructure is made up of a complex mix of data centers, clouds, branches, and edges. IT teams need to rethink how they connect and protect their business in this new multi-cloud era, and they need every advantage they can get to stay ahead (or keep up).

In this Showcase Keynote, you will hear from Callum on the latest innovations and technologies that are transforming networking and security. You will learn how forward-thinking organizations are embracing the vision of a Virtual Cloud Network as a blueprint to a simplified, agile network that provides consistent connectivity, branch optimization, and security across their entire infrastructure – data center to cloud to edge.
2:45 PM - 3:10 PM
Five Design Considerations for Advanced Security in SDDC
Palo Alto Network VM-Series Virtual firewall is designed for the software-defined data center (SDDC). To keep pace with the changes in the agile SDDC, the NSX edition of the VM-Series firewall simplifies the process of deploying a Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewall and continually enforcing security and compliance for the east-west traffic in the SDDC.
3:10 PM - 3:35PM
Enabling Hybrid Cloud Security for NSX and VMware Cloud on AWS
VMware Cloud on Amazon Web Services (AWS), along with its extension of NSX capabilities, offers a unique opportunity for organizations that have not yet made a full transition to the cloud. Organizations can now easily expand their datacenter to the cloud using the same capabilities and tool sets they are familiar with. The expansion of the datacenter to the cloud requires that the IT security team be able to protect all of the resources and be able to do it with the confidence that the same security is applied in the datacenter and beyond. Join us as we explain how the extension of NSX from your on-premise data center to VMC on AWS and ultimately to a multi-cloud infrastructure allows you to take advantage of the capabilities of NSX and how this transition can be made in a seamless and secure manner.

Implementing Endpoint Security and Conditional Access for Office 365
Office 365 is an integral part of your organization’s productivity strategy, allowing email, documents, and other internal artifacts to be consumed by users on any device. Given the criticality of these services, it is imperative that IT is aware of who has access to Office 365 resources, the devices that are accessing these, and what functionality is available to users. The endpoint is where enterprise data is most likely to be leaked from, and architecting a solution to negate this is paramount. In this session, you will learn about the core challenges in managing Office 365, and what endpoint security methods need to be employed to address DLP challenges across common use cases.
