Happy New Year, folks! To kick off 2021 and shake off those remaining post-holiday blues, we’d love to invite you to join us for a chat with VMware Carbon Black on Wednesday, January 13th. We’ll be talking about best practices for bridging the Security-IT divide within vulnerability management and increasing cloud workload protection using risk-based prioritization. 

In September of last year, we announced an exciting new chapter in our relationship with VMware. This time, Kenna’s vulnerability assessment technology has been integrated into VMware Carbon Black Cloud Workload—a new, cloud-native platform for cloud workload protection (CWP).

In our day-to-day work here at Kenna with our clients, we consistently see Security and IT teams struggling to see eye-to-eye on the most efficient way to tame the vulnerability management beast. Security teams face a mandate to keep every vulnerability in check–even if the number is in the thousands, hundreds of thousands, or millions. IT, on the other hand, is buried under the demand to patch everything, all the while trying to keep critical business systems up and running. 

When it comes to protecting cloud workloads, VMware Carbon Black works to reconcile this dynamic. Vulnerability management is the foundation of CWP, which means that an effective vulnerability prioritization strategy will make a world of difference for security teams responsible for measuring the risk of their cloud workloads and the infrastructure admins who are in the weeds struggling with remediation. 

Working through this challenge will be the topic of the hour in the conversation between Kenna’s Jason Rolleston and VMware Carbon Black’s Tom Corn next week. Register now and join us for what will be a valuable conversation no matter where you sit—Security, IT, exec. 

And, if you haven’t already, be sure to listen to last month’s Security Science podcast featuring VMware Head of Security Strategy Rick McElroy to learn a little more about Kenna’s relationship with VMware and the company’s vision for the future of cloud security.
