This Christmas Infosecurity has invited five top industry names to each fill the role of guest editor for a day, and we are delighted to introduce Louise Öström, who will be taking the reins today!
Louise is vice-president of software defined data centre (SDDC), VMware EMEA. Louise is responsible for driving the adoption of VMware NSX, vSAN, Management and Automation, the modern platform for the Software-Defined Data Center that transforms the economics of network, storage, security and operations, across EMEA.
Louise and her EMEA team work closely with product management and development teams to ensure VMware’s SDDC platform solutions deliver ROI to customers, in a world where cyber-attacks are increasing and traditional security measures are struggling to keep pace.
