The company I work for uses Microsoft, Linux, Java and .NET technologies and we aim for becoming a full ISO27001 certified company.. We have a polarizing issue with the use of Linux.
My questions are:
a) Are there blogs/web resources that have stories/documentations about the peaceful co existence of the two desktops?
b) Has anybody simply just “quarantined” Linux workstations like controlling all network/server/service access with Active Directory and having a dedicated strong network monitoring policy for guarding the Linux workstations?
c) I know that a Antivirus is next to useless on a Linux workstation but is there any threat monitoring systems/MDM for the Linux workstation that can be integrated with Microsoft-Intunes?
I really am desperate for advice.. has anybody gone through this when planning for compliance?
Thank you in advance.. 🙂
Dependency updates are dependent on who's providing the dependency, and how. App-bundled dependency is dependent on the app to update. Likewise with Docker-bundled dependency, lang-repo dependency, Linux distro dependency.
The usual Linux distros that have one unified copy of each dependency are the best about thorough updates. Apps that silently bundle or static-compile dependencies are the worst -- and this is worse on Java, Win32, mobile operating systems, and often Docker.
