The Nutanix platform and all products leverage the Security Configuration Management Automation (SCMA) framework to ensure that services are constantly inspected for variance to the security policy. Nutanix has implemented security configuration management automation (SCMA) to check multiple security entities for both Nutanix storage and AHV. It continuously assesses and heals Nutanix clusters to ensure that it meets or exceeds all regulatory requirements. In this process over 1,700 security entities are analyzed and self-corrected across storage and hypervisor (AHV only) layers. Nutanix automatically reports log inconsistencies and reverts them to the baseline.
With SCMA, you can schedule the Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIG) to run hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly. STIG has the lowest system priority within the virtual storage controller, ensuring that security checks do not interfere with platform performance.
