CimTrak for VMware ESXi Monitoring
Available from Cimcor
CimTrak examines critical core VMware ESXi configurations such a user/host access permissions, active directory realms, network settings, integrated 3rd party tools, and advanced user configurations. This gives you the ability to proactively protect critical ESXi hosts and ensure the security and continuity of your operations.
Active monitoring of VMware ESXi hypervisor configurations is an important aspect in the process of IT security as well as overall best-practices in an administrative environment. Many VMware ESXi configuration monitoring products monitor the VMware hypervisor using VMware’s application programming interface. Unfortunately tools utilizing this method are limited to capturing only information exposed by the VMware hypervisor.
CimTrak VMware takes VMware ESXi monitoring to the next step by monitoring the configurations of the VMware Hypervisor directly at the source. CimTrak interfaces directly with VMware to securely capture actual configuration data files from the Hypervisor host. Capturing the actual configuration data files allows complete analysis of the VMware Hypervisor and the host operating system running the Hypervisor. Additionally, CimTrak’s method of detection provides administrators the capability to manually roll-back configurations using the authoritative copy of configurations stored within CimTrak’s Master Repository.
