Securing the Private Cloud
You built your cloud, now secure it
The rapid and comprehensive adoption of virtualization in the enterprise data center can yield huge financial and agility benefits, but has also resulted new kinds of risk. As we’ve seen repeatedly in recent breaches, a single compromised hypervisor account is all that’s needed to steal vast amounts of sensitive data, or take down thousands of production virtual servers, bringing company operations to a halt.
Virtualization also creates a compliance challenge. Under most regulatory or audit frameworks, the infrastructure that hosts in-scope data will itself be in-scope, which means that a full set of compliance controls will apply to the virtualization plane in the data center stack. As just one example, in PCI DSS the hypervisor and virtual network is always in-scope.
Fortunately it is possible to enhance the security posture of platforms such as NSX, vCenter and vSphere without impacting existing workflows or changing the familiar interfaces your virtualization teams already know and use.
