It’s time to release the vSphere 6.0 Hardening Guide! As I mentioned back in April, there are a lot of changes that have been made. In talking with customers and auditors in detail for the past year, the conclusion was reached that the Hardening Guide was
- Difficult to understand
- Contained a mix of
- Operational Guidance – How you use the product in your environment
- Programmatic Guidance – What settings should be applied OR audited
Basically, it was NOT easy to implement. And if security is too difficult to implement, people will either not do it or will do it poorly.
Recently I was asked by the vBrownbag community to present on vSphere 6 security. vBrownbag is a community-lead podcast series that features online webinars covering various Virtualization and VMware Certification topics, all led by members of the community. It’s an outstanding resource if you are looking to achieve certification or are just in the mood to learn. Read on to see how this webinar went and view for yourself.
