Detecting and Blocking Malware at the Gateway

Posted by Clearpath Solutions Group on Thu, Dec 08, 2016 @ 02:13 PM

Modern malware is evolving at an extremely rapid pace. In fact, a new malware is created nearly every second. Due to the dynamic landscape of ever-growing malware variants, traditional antivirus solutions are becoming less effective - unable to detect and block the unknown malware before it can infiltrate and compromise an organization’s network and systems, driving the need for a more comprehensive solution. In the past two years this has become an increasing busy space among OEM solutions providers. Cisco Systems, Checkpoint software, and Fortinet have invested in providing cost effective solutions that are easily managed resulting in low effort required to provide critical protection of your organizations devices.

NSX Manager Host Preparation Fails When Port 80 on vCenter Already in Use

Posted by Soheil Amiri on Wed, May 18, 2016 @ 02:30 PM
We recently implemented NSX in an existing vCenter/vSphere environment and ran across an interesting issue when attempting to prepare the hosts. SQL Server Reporting Services was co-installed with vCenter, so to prevent a conflict on TCP/80 the customer specified a custom HTTP port during vCenter installation. At this point we should have been conflict free on TCP/80 but as we soon found out, that was not the case.
