“As more enterprise functions move to virtual environments, businesses require real-time visibility into activity involving privileged accounts in order to monitor how these environments are being used,” explained Ben Yoder, product manager, Thycotic Software. “Monitoring and controlling privileged sessions within VMware platforms means IT administrators can more accurately assess what actions are being performed, leveraging all company assets – both sanctioned and unsanctioned – and respond appropriately.”
VMware ESX is VMware’s enterprise server virtualization platform. The platform is available in two versions -- ESX Server and ESXi Server. VMware ESX and ESXi are the most widely deployed hypervisors, delivering the highest levels of reliability and performance to companies of all sizes. VMware ESXi is the latest hypervisor architecture from VMware. With Secret Server’s new enhancements, IT administrators can better manage:
