VMWare Enterprise Licensing

Even the most advanced IT department has difficulty procuring, deploying and managing thousands of assets in an enterprise environment.

With VMware in particular, enterprise licensing is even more difficult to navigate. According to Gartner, finding useful advice on VMware enterprise licensing is next to impossible, thanks to a lack of public information and highly-customized terms and conditions.

This guide is your starting point to VMware Enterprise Licensing Agreements (ELA). The 3-year contract simplifies your licensing while unlocking up to 40% in savings on new licenses and support. Use this resource to uncover the key actions you must take to unlock the most value in negotiating, optimizing and renewing your VMware ELA.

5 Steps to Achieve Risk-Based Application Security Management

Software applications support the most sensitive and strategically important business processes of most enterprises. Yet application security is one of the most neglected fields of cybersecurity.

IT and business management typically have no visibility into the overall state of application security. Activities for assessing, prioritizing and remediating application vulnerabilities are ad hoc, fragmented and carried out at low levels in the IT security organization. Quality assurance and software development groups lack the knowledge and incentives to address critical vulnerabilities early in application development lifecycles, where testing and fixing vulnerabilities are most cost-effective.

Application Security Buyers’ Guide: Managing Application Security Risk Requires a Comprehensive Toolkit

Today, 85% of security attacks target software applications, according to SAP. Not surprisingly, there is an array of application security tools on the market to help companies address security risks, and they vary in both approach and coverage. For example, traditional application security tools—dynamic application security testing (DAST) and static application security testing (SAST)—are very effective in finding bugs in the application code internal developers write. However, they are not effective in identifying open source software vulnerabilities. Given that open source is an essential component in application development worldwide, effective open source vulnerability management is imperative.

This guide provides a comprehensive overview of application security risks, discusses the types of solutions available, and looks at where each excels or falls short. It discusses why organizations need a comprehensive application security toolkit to stay secure throughout the product life cycle.
