System hardening guidance against exposures that threaten server based computing and VDI environments

This joint white paper from Citrix and Mandiant provides summary guidance and resources for hardening against exposures that threaten server based computing and VDI environments, including Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop. All changes should be implemented in a test or development environment before modifying the production environment in order to avoid any unexpected side effects. Finally, all efforts should be reinforced and validated through continuous penetration testing against the virtualized environment as a whole. This should provide the greatest level of resiliency against a real-world attack.
