VMware vSphere Security 5.1

Starting this new role at VMware, I have found some amazing documents and I wanted to make sure they got to you. One of these documents is vSphere Security (link provided below via the image). This document is focused on securing VMware vCenter Server and VMware ESXi for 5.1. This document is great and since I am still having this discussion with customers, it has become a document that I need to bring to every customer. It covers a multitude of topics and truly should be read by anyone running a virtual environment and has any question about the security of it
