On the 14th episode of Virtual Stack Podcast, I’m joined by Christoph Buschbeck from VMware and we talk about AppDefense, VMware’s data centre endpoint security solution that embeds threat detection and response into the virtualisation layer. We look into the Enterprise IT Security landscape of today, what’s working well, what can be improved, and why we should be "ensuring good" vs. "chasing bad”.
