Full Visibility Of Issues In Your Hybrid Cloud

Runecast continuously scans configuration and logs against known issues, security standards, the Hardware Compatibility List (HCL), VMware Best Practices, Best Practices for Pure Storage and SAP HANA on vSphere, and for vSphere on Nutanix – to help stabilize and secure your VMware infrastructure. VMSAs/CVEs display on the main dashboard to make vulnerability management simple.

Ensure consistency and end config drift with Configuration Vault. You can generate custom remediation scripts in Runecast. Validate host hardware, BIOS, drivers and firmware against the HCL (for current installed versions and upgrade simulation) and maintain historical data for audit evidence and trends over time.

Simulate Upgrades and Review HW Compatibility

Automate the verification of every asset in your VMware infrastructure against the VMware HCL. Many VMware teams often skip this tedious manual process, which should ideally be performed regularly.

By automating this procedure, you can ensure running a compatible configuration without burdening your team with additional work. Additionally, Runecast offers an ESXi upgrade simulation feature to verify its future compatibility.

Continuous Security Compliance

Compliance is often treated as an ad-hoc status for an audit, but it’s essential to maintain continuous compliance with historical visibility—it’s an enduring commitment.

Choose from our extensive library of ready-to-use and continuously updated compliance standards, from industry-specific to region-specific regulations. Need something unique? Feel empowered to create your own standards that perfectly fit your needs!

Recognizing that no two environments are alike, Runecast offers customization options for compliance rules and desired values. This ensures that our tools cater directly to your specific requirements.

Seamless integration is key, and that's why we make it easy for you to transfer all compliance data from Runecast to your other essential tools. Use our myriad of export options or tap into our robust API for more flexibility.

With Runecast at your side, establishing continuous monitoring and maintenance mechanisms is a breeze. This way, you can confidently maintain your organization's compliance, today and every day after.

How It Works
