How Runecast works for IT Operations & Security Teams

Running your IT operations in a AWS or Azure cloud, Kubernetes clusters, or VMware SDDC? Built by Admins for Admins, Runecast Analyzer is your new best friend for visibility into risks and issues, time/cost savings, and security compliance monitoring and reporting.

Runecast is a patented enterprise IT platform that provides IT ops and security teams one platform for configuration monitoring, vulnerability management, security compliance, remediation, upgrade planning and reporting.

  • Disruptive, patented solution that automates proactive analysis of logs, configuration drift, and security posture within your environment.
  • Simple, lightweight platform that is super-easy to deploy and operates securely on-premises (no data needs to leave your control) to provide you with remediation steps before any issues can lead to a PSOD or downtime.
  • Operational transparency and best practices alignment
  • Real-time configuration management, vulnerability scanning and security compliance audits
  • Freed up team resources (to work proactively on growth drivers)


Our founders, themselves IT system administrators, experienced that around 90% of issues occurring in virtualized environments had already been documented in Knowledge Base (KB) articles, forums, and other public resources – but it wasn't humanly possible to keep on top of all this information. With this in mind, they had a vision to build real-time, automated insights for mission-critical IT environments.

The result: Runecast Analyzer

Runecast Analyzer’s patented technology converts industry sources of information (e.g. VMware Knowledge Base (KB) articles, vendor Best Practices, security hardening guidelines, security compliance standards/benchmarks, and other ‘sources of truth’) into machine-readable data. This data is processed on the Runecast Analyzer appliance, which then scans your AWS, Azure, Kubernetes, VMware and Windows and Linux OS for hidden problems, deviations from best practices, and non-compliance with the security frameworks that you select.

Runecast Analyzer continuously scans configuration and logs against known issues, security standards, VMware HCL, vendor Best Practices, and more – to enable your IT Operations Management (ITOM) with a proactive approach toward Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM), Kubernetes Security Posture Management (KSPM), and overall Security Configuration Assessment (SCA). VMSAs/CVEs display on the main dashboard to make vulnerability management simple. Ensure consistency and end config drift with Configuration Vault. Generate custom remediation scripts. Validate host hardware, BIOS, drivers and firmware against the HCL (for current installed versions and upgrade simulation). See issues and historical data for AWS, Azure, Kubernetes and VMware.

Security Compliance

Get & stay ‘audit-ready’, all the time.

Runecast Analyzer makes security configuration assessment simple by auditing AWS, Azure, Kubernetes VMware environments against common standards like BSI IT-Grundschutz, CIS Benchmarks, Cyber Essentials, DISA STIG, Essential 8, GDPR, HIPAA, ISO 27001, NIST, PCI DSS, vendor guidelines, etc.

The best part is that Runecast Analyzer runs securely on-premises with real-time automated insights, so no data needs to leave your control.

Issue Prevention

Prevent issues before they turn troublesome – with real-time AWS, Azure, Kubernetes and VMware intelligence.

Manually troubleshooting (reactively) makes no sense – and it’s humanly impossible to do it well proactively.

Runecast Analyzer scans your AWS, Azure, Kubernetes and VMware in minutes.

Benefit from real-time, predictive analytics for performance analysis, configuration management, vulnerability assessment, and more.

Hardware Compatibility

Automate aligning your hardware to VMware’s HCL.

To replace hours of work previously spent matching hardware with the HCL, Runecast Analyzer shows you the compatibility with one click.

It runs a rapid, automated analysis using the latest HCL for your servers and I/O devices.

ESXi upgrade simulations show future compatibility against the HCL, so you can fix any issues before they can even happen.

Log Analysis

Automate proactive issue recognition and resolution steps.

Our customers report up to 80% savings on troubleshooting and remediation time by using Runecast Analyzer’s real-time predictive analytics.

Runecast Analyzer scans in real time for specific patterns in your vSphere logs.

As soon as log entries indicate an issue, Runecast Analyzer shows you steps to resolve it.
