VMware Security Solutions Fundamentals

With Cloud based technologies, data can be stored anywhere, so it’s good to understand the fundamentals of security.

With Cloud based technologies, data can be stored anywhere, so it’s good to understand the fundamentals of security.

Security is becoming more and more important and I regularly get asked questions about security guidelines for virtualization. I always recommend the 1 hour supplemental course on security, produced by VMware.

Overview: This free eLearning course provides the background information needed to work with the products included in the VMware Security Solution. The course begins with a review of basic security methodologies and how virtualization affects security. References for follow-on reading are provided for students less familiar with these concepts.

Next, the course discusses the VMware security strategy: Each product in the VMware Security Solution is introduced by discussing the limitations of traditional security controls and describing how the products in the solution address these limitations.

The course concludes with a list of relevant security and compliance online resources.
