What Is Nutanix and Its Security?

This article walks you through the first setup of your Nutanix device by providing the required default password. Make sure you read to the end to learn about our perfect solution that helps you efficiently manage all your passwords, including that of your Nutanix appliance.

 

Nutanix, Inc. is an American cloud computing company that develops and markets software, cloud services, and software-defined storage. Its products and solutions include desktops as a service, disaster recovery as a service, and cloud monitoring. Nutanix AHV hosts are quite popular and users may  have difficulty launching them if they don’t know this information

Nutanix and Default Passwords

The default password of an appliance is a piece of text that the manufacturer sets for the user to complete their first run of the product. The most common default passwords are “password”, “guest”, or the brand name of the product. Companies generally set a single passcode for the same product. This is also the case for some web services, where users need a default login and password when they try to initialize their accounts. Default passwords and other necessary information can also be found on the company’s official website or in the user manual that comes with the product. Moreover, there are high-ranking websites that publish long lists of default login info, organized by brand and model. The critical takeaway is, a single piece of text is assigned to numerous devices, and this poses an immense security threat to your device and your cyber identity.

 

If you don’t change the default password of your device and use it over and over, you jeopardize your device and data. Default passwords are the first option for hackers to use as attack vectors to breach your device. If your device connects to a corporate network, that breach risks subjects the whole company to irreversible damage.

 

A default password should be treated as a disposable placeholder only to be changed to a real custom password. Some manufacturers and providers enforce change of default passwords upon the first setup. This way, users can’t continue to use their device without setting a custom password instead of the default one. Anyhow, the safest and easiest method to deal with this issue is using a dedicated password manager solution.

Nutanix Support and Product Security recommend that customers change all default passwords for Nutanix products. You must change the default Controller VM password for the Nutanix user account by following the password complexity requirements.
 
Always create a strong password for your Nutanix device for utmost security. But ironically, strong passwords are hard to remember. If you often forget your passwords and have to reset them, you should use a password manager that creates strong passwords, stores them in secure Vaults, and encrypts them.
