Many businesses find that the number of workloads and applications in their data center far exceeds the amount that a security administrator can manage manually. Data centers have numerous components that require protection; networking equipment, IT appliances, applications, OSes, hypervisors, and even baseband management controls in servers can all be compromised.
Traditional security methods, such as using antimalware applications that rely on signatures or behavioral heuristics, have been largely unsuccessful because malware can adapt to antimalware and find ways to work around it. VMware’s solution to this problem is to use the hypervisor to make sure nothing untoward is going on inside a VM. The hypervisor sits on a separate trust domain than the application or OS it operates on, so it’s less likely that the malware it’s attempting to detect will compromise it.
