New free tool to automatically check the Security of your ESX servers and Virtual Machines

Tripwire to released Tripwire ConfigCheck for VMware ESX

Tripwire ConfigCheck is a lightweight version of Tripwire Enterprise For VMware ESX Server —a security and compliance-checking application designed to evaluate large server installations. Tripwire ConfigCheck is designed to sift through the hundreds of configuration settings within VMware’s ESX Server and identify those that are not set according to VMware’s recommendations.

The new tool also provides guidelines users can follow to fix the problems, if they choose to do so.
