Fix Recommendation

Hardened, patched templates must be used for VM creation, properly configured OS deployments and applications. Applications dependent on VM-specific information must also use hardened, patched templates.

Check Contents

Ask the SA if hardened, patched templates are used for VM creation, properly configured OS deployments, including applications both dependent and non-dependent on VM-specific configurations.




If hardened, patched templates are not used for VM creation, this is a finding.
