Cloud computing is currently top of the list for IT spend, but 50% of servers that move from physical to virtual environments become less secure.
A critical and often overlooked aspect of migrating to a virtualized environment is setting up security effectively. Virtualization technologies are not secure “out of the box” and VMware® is no exception. The VMware® Hacking Uncovered / Advanced Security course focuses on where the vulnerabilities lie, and how to reduce the threat of attack in a virtualized environment.
This course goes well beyond the typical security protocol administrators’ use to secure their current environment; it delves much deeper into the actual workings and shortcomings of the VMware® environment.
You'll learn about all components of the vSphere environment. From the virtual CPU to the storage devices attached to your host, and everything in between. Critically, you'll understand how a cyber criminal could infiltrate your virtual environment, and how to prevent this.
This VMware® training course is intensive, with about 50% of your time spent in labs. You'll learn about these VMware® products:
