VMware to unveil security initiative

VMware Inc is working with some of the world’s biggest security software makers to better protect computers running on its virtualization software, said people familiar with the plans.

Partners in the effort — dubbed VMsafe — include Symantec Corp, McAfee Inc, the Internet Security Systems division of International Business Machines Corp, EMC Corp’s RSA security unit and Check Point Software Technologies Ltd, they said.

The sources asked not to be identified by name because VMware wants to unveil the initiative next week at the VMworld Europe users conference in Cannes, France.
