Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

We regularly scan all of our hosts, physical and virtual, with Nessus, looking for vulnerabilities. In addition, for *nix hosts, we have AIDE configured and running daily reports, looking for new/modified files in critical areas. We also have Sourcefire IPDS sensors littered around our network, sniffing for suspect behavior.

I’m sure I’m missing something. We’ve spent a fair bit of time and money looking for a good balance of security and usability.

    You have to treat your VMs just like your physical hosts. Harden them, scan them, and monitor them in the same ways because they have the same issues.
