Attack Surface Checklist for VMware Environments

To secure your VMware environment, it's crucial to understand your attack surface — the sum of all potential entry points for unauthorized access, spanning hardware, software, and human factors. These entry points can be external or internal within your virtualized landscape.Absolute security is unattainable, but acknowledging the expansiveness of your attack surface is the initial step towards fortification. Runecast offers an attack surface reduction checklist that helps in pinpointing and mitigating vulnerabilities. Following this checklist enables organizations to shrink their attack surface, decreasing the likelihood and potential impact of cyber threats.

Security Compliance

Defending Against Ransomware Attacks

Ransomware attacks are becoming increasingly common and are causing significant damage to organizations, exploiting vulnerabilities in systems to gain access and spread throughout the network, often causing irreparable damage by encrypting mission-critical workloads. 

The most efficient protection against any form of cyber-attack is to prevent it from happening in the first place.

Why Runecast?

Protect Kubernetes in Production with HPE Ezmeral & Runecast

As workloads move from virtual machines(VMs) into the cloud and Kubernetes space, it is easy to lose visibility of the varying best practices and security standards. Monitoring and security are more challenging because IT administrators often need to use multiple tools for VMs and Kubernetes. Runecast on HPE Ezmeral Runtime Enterprise solves this problem with a single interface by providing monitoring, best practices, and security/compliance checks for Kubernetes, public cloud, and VMs.

Reducing Operational Complexity

An overview of challenges with virtualization for all business sizes (e.g. interdependence, volume of Knowledge Base articles, reactive fault resolution) as well as the simplest means to address such challenges proactively and effectively, via automated scanning, log monitoring/analysis and security compliance checks.

Check out this informative white paper by top technical author Alastair Cooke!

  • Without being able to proactively identify potential issues, resolution is inherently reactive and outages are just a matter of when
    IT admins cannot physically do what an automated tool can do – e.g. read and memorize +30K KB articles, Best Practices, etc., to find all possible misconfigurations and security gaps
  • A simple solution exists and typically provides ROI from the very first scan
