Virtualization presents new opportunities for securing your data and systems. Virtualizing your data center often brings new challenges, requiring your IT staff to assume new, and sometimes unfamiliar, roles and responsibilities. This five-day course teaches you how to use the VMware software-defined data center (SDDC) product portfolio and tools to better manage administrator access, harden your VMware vSphere environment, and secure data at rest and in motion. This course also discusses end-user computing (EUC) security, as well as compliance and automation to help you ensure that your deployments align with your security policies.
