Ensuring that proper security measures are in place calls for robust security testing mechanisms. GuardiCore’s Infection Monkey is an open source Breach and Attack Simulation (BAS) tool that tests and evaluates the effectiveness of your network security configurations during post-breach attacks. You can simulate a breach by “infecting” a server with a “Monkey” that runs around your network using various methods to enter propagation paths and attacks each point of vulnerability it discovers.

We are excited to announce the Horizon 7 virtual desktop and application platform is now supported on VMware Cloud on AWS. Architecturally, the Horizon 7 platform is the same on-premises as it is on VMware Cloud on AWS, so the deployment and management experience stays consistent across environments. Customers no longer have to purchase new hardware to launch or scale Horizon 7, and instead have the option of pay-as-you-go by leveraging VMware Cloud on AWS hourly billing.
We are often asked how to integrate software with Amazon SageMaker and use the service’s built-in machine learning algorithms.

The how-to guides also detail how the APN uses Partner-submitted documentation and gives a few examples approved by the APN.
