vSphere Security - VMware vSphere 6.7

December 25, 2019

A companion document, Platform Services Controller Administration, explains how you can use the Platform Services Controller services, for example, to manage authentication with vCenter Single Sign-On and to manage certificates in your vSphere environment. The vSphere Security Configuration Guide contains guidelines on security settings that can or should be set by the customer, and security settings delivered by VMware that should be audited by the customer to ensure that they are still set to default.

Virtualized Networks and Real Risks: Best Practices for Securing Network Function Virtualization Environment

whitePaper | October 3, 2022

Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) is unleashing fundamental innovation in the way organizations buy, deploy, and operate network infrastructures. By leveraging open standards and commodity hardware, NFV delivers cost savings, enhanced flexibility, improved performance, and more. However, without the right safeguards, organizations can also see their vulnerabilities increase when they move to a Virtualized Network Functions (VNF) architecture. This white paper offers a detailed look at the unique security implications of adopting NFV approaches, and it provides a number of best practices to employ to ensure sensitive data and transmissions remain secure in these environments.

Zero Trust Maturity Model

whitePaper | June 13, 2023

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) leads the nation’s effort to understand, manage, and reduce cybersecurity risk, including by supporting Federal Civilian Executive Branch agencies in evolving and operationalizing cybersecurity programs and capabilities. CISA’s Zero Trust Maturity Model (ZTMM) provides an approach to achieve continued modernization efforts related to zero trust within a rapidly evolving environment and technology landscape. This ZTMM is one of many paths that an organization can take in designing and implementing their transition plan to zero trust architectures in accordance with Executive Order (EO) 14028 “Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity” § (3)(b)(ii),1 which requires that agencies develop a plan to implement a Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA). While the ZTMM is specifically tailored for federal agencies as required by EO 14028, all organizations should review and consider adoption of the approaches outlined in this document.
