You may have heard that CryptoAuditor is now certified as VCE Vblock Ready. Here's what it means in a nutshell:
1. VCE Vblock System
The Vblock System is the world's most advanced converged infrastructure, providing rapid deployments and dramatically lower IT costs by offering pre-integrated, pre-tested and pre-validated converged infrastructure solutions that combine best-in-class compute, network, storage, data protection and virtualization technologies from Cisco, EMC and VMware, delivered as a single product with unified support across all components.
2. CryptoAuditor Certification
Vblock Ready certification provides customers with the assurance that CryptoAuditor™ can now interoperate with Vblock Systems. This means that CryptoAuditor is tested and verified to work in the Vblock System and can be “dropped in“ to set up a powerful auditing and access management solution for privileged users, i.e. system administrators maintaining servers within the converged system.
In the simple deployment scenario, CryptoAuditor is set up as the admin user gateway that audits all the encrypted traffic passing through – without any need to change tools, deploy agents or change any processes that admins might already be using. This helps organizations be compliant with standards such as PCI-DSS, which requires privileged user access monitoring, in order to protect critical assets from misuse.
