Do not use third-party software that VMware does not support. Verify that all third-party software is securely configured and patched in accordance with third-party vendor guidance.
Inauthentic, insecure, or unpatched vulnerabilities of third-party software installed on VMware host machines might put the system at risk of unauthorized access and disruption of availability. All software that VMware does not supply must be appropriately secured and patched.
If you must use third-party software that VMware does not support, consult the third-party vendor for secure configuration and patching requirements.
