Description

This course is far more advanced than any typical security course. Students will learn about the security protocols that administrators utilize to secure their environment and dive head first into the actual workings of the VMware environment. Students will learn about various threats and how to prevent and secure the VMware environment from them. It is recommended that students have an in-depth knowledge of VMware's ESX/ESXI virtualization environment.
