Virtual Stack

Dec 2, 2019

On the 27th episode of the show, I’m joined by Stijn Vanveerdeghem, Senior Technical Product Manager at VMware. 
Distributed IPS/IDS (Intrusion Prevention and Detection System) on NSX-T was one of the biggest announcements at VMworld 2019 Europe. Stijn is the Technical Product Manager behind this feature and he took the time to explain us what VMware is bringing to the security market and what are the distinctive benefits that customers can gain from using this feature.
You can reach out to Stijn via LinkedIn ( 
Virtual Stack is available on all major apps: Apple Podcast, Spotify, Google Podcast, Stitcher and more.
Hope you enjoy the show. As usual, feel free to share your feedback via Twitter (@emregirici), LinkedIn or
