Podcast: Ensuring Hyper-V security: What virtualization means for network protection
Microsoft’s Hyper-V offers many benefits for IT shops looking to virtualize Windows servers, but like other hypervisor solutions, it also comes with some security risks. Guests that are not properly patched can create network vulnerabilities that administrators will need to address in order to keep servers up and running. In this podcast, we will cover various strategies for protecting your virtualized network, including setting up and managing endpoint protection software and exploring the different requirements for host and guest security. In addition to discussing network protection within Windows Server 2008 and Server 2008 R2, this podcast will also cover how security strategies may change with the introduction of Hyper-V 3.0 in Windows Server 8, expected to be released sometime in 2012.
