New VMware Firewall Focuses on Known Good Behavior

VMware on Tuesday announced the launch of a new internal firewall solution designed to reduce an organization’s attack surface by focusing on known good behavior rather than attempting to chase potential threats.

The new VMware Service-defined Firewall aims to protect apps, data and users by locking down known good behavior both at host and network level.

VMware says that while other companies have tried this approach – focusing on known good behavior – getting a complete understanding of every application has been difficult to achieve. Some solutions rely on agents installed in the guest, but that can be impractical and these agents can be easily bypassed if an attacker gains complete control of the host. There are also some challenges related to applications being increasingly distributed.
