Virtualization Security: Achieving Compliance for the Virtual Infrastructure

Virtualization Security: Achieving Compliance for the Virtual Infrastructure

Cover

In theory, 2009 should be the year that virtualization security (VirtSec) takes off: Server virtualization has been widely deployed. VirtSec products are ready. The VirtSec vendor list has doubled since 2008. There’s just one catch: Enterprises aren’t currently planning to deploy the technology. Only 10% of the organizations that participate in Nemertes' virtualization research have deployed VirtSec--and fully 70% have no plans to do so. Why not?

 

What’s top of mind for enterprise IT practitioners is compliance, yet most VirtSec vendors aren’t articulating the ways in which their products can help enterprises address compliance concerns. What’s not top of mind – and should be - is that virtualization makes the strong perimeter defense obsolete.
