IdentityLogix Releases SpyLogix Module for VMware

IdentityLogix innovation in continuous security intelligence and real-time data actualization is extended today with the addition of SpyLogix for VMware. This module organizes and leverages security data from VMware infrastructures. This latest module for SpyLogix Enterprise is exciting as it provides enhanced visibility into both VMware administrative role based access control (RBAC) and task information, all in one easy to use software product.

"As virtualized infrastructures grow and are leveraged to meet business information demands, so grows the IT security governance, risk and compliance complexities," says Edward Haletky, a virtualization industry consultant. "There is a growing need to map VMware vCenter and other management tools to a single Role Based Access Control, lacking that capability it is very important to know exactly what access into the virtual environment all your users and groups have across vCenter, vSphere and other management products."

SpyLogix for VMware is designed to automatically acquire, organize and leverage VMware RBAC security data that defines administrative user permissions. RBAC is configured and stored within multiple resources used by VMware, with each resource having an assigned order of precedence within VMware's security hierarchy. And with the granularity of RBAC permissions offered by VMware, complexity in management and control over administrative permissions increases exponentially. SpyLogix for VMware simplifies administrative security to enable desired benefits available through a virtualized infrastructure.

VMware Module Featured Highlights:

Discovery and monitoring of

- ESX/ESXi users and groups
- ESX/ESXi roles and permissions
- vCenter users and groups
- vCenter users/groups in Active Directory
- vCenter roles and permissions

VMware produces non-persistent and persistent activity data as administrators and the system itself perform tasks. SpyLogix for VMware also provides convenient continuous access to, and leverage of, VMware task information.

VMware Task Information Management

- Record non-persistent ESX/ESXi data
- Discover persistent ESX/ESXi data
- Monitor persistent ESX/ESXi data

"We are excited to bring to market an industry first security technology for VMware infrastructures," according to Michael A. Hlebasko, IdentityLogix's President and Co-founder. "The ability for organizations to enhance VMware security visibility with the uniqueness of SpyLogix saves time, money and resources for organizations with growing VMware infrastructures."

SpyLogix for VMware module is a companion technology for SpyLogix Enterprise, a system designed for continuous security intelligence and real-time data actualization. SpyLogix for VMware is immediately available to customers worldwide. For additional details about SpyLogix for VMware please visit:
