VMware’s Center for Policy & Compliance is pleased to announce the release of BASEL III Content for vCenter Configuration Manager ™ (VCM).

Hej, virtualization Nerds, 

Like Danish Dynamite, we are going to blow it up this week at VMworld Copenhagen! 

IT Control Objectives for Basel III provides a framework for managing operational and information risk and extends the VMware content family that is used to achieve a Trusted vCloud solution.

These deep technical  rules will help reduce time to audit by providing immediate analysis of Compliance Assessment, Automated Remediation & Evidence based verification. 

Platforms covered include:    

  • ESX, ESXi, vCenter
  • Guest Windows & LINUX
  • Non x86  AIX, HPUX 
  • 

Center for Policy & Compliance (CP&C) built the out of the box Basel III rules by cross referencing ISO standards and leveraging the CobiT Framework.  

Here is a BASEL III Heterogeneous, Comprehensive Dashboard Example from vCM.

BASEL III Rules

CP&C built the out of the box Basel III rules by cross referencing ISO standards and leveraging the CobiT Framework. We also started accounting for enhancements in Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 that allow administrators to connect business rules and audit policies within the vCM Compliance Engine.  

Here is a BASEL III Heterogeneous, Comprehensive Dashboard Example from vCM. 

Look for more EMEA based content in the future from CP&C along with free tools like a BASEL III & PCI 2.0 compliance checkers.

Peace Out or fred ud!
