As covered by Denise Dubie in Network World and Kevin Fogarty in CIO today, Tripwire’s new ConfigCheck product was released to the market. Not only does this FREE utility automate the process of ensuring a VMware environment is configured according to VMware’s security hardening guidelines but it also gives remediation guidance for any specific issues found. This not only enables an IT person to find out where their VMware system is not in alignment with the security hardening guidelines but it educates them on how to fix the issue(s).
So far demand and use of the FREE utility has been solid. As more people become aware of the utility it will no doubt grow in usage. Why not? It’s free. It provide best-practices insight directly from VMware. And it’s easy to install and use. What’s not to love about this if you are an IT person.
