Today, what virtualization software can accomplish is nearly limitless. But has your computer security methodology and software kept up?


Like the PC and Internet revolutions before, virtualization software has changed the world. End-users can carry around several operating system (OS) versions and platforms on a single computer. Single applications can be virtualized all the way up to entire desktops. Data centers, which used to be composed of hundreds of single-purpose computers, are now represented by much smaller, and more inexpensive, clusters of virtualization hosts. Now it is common to have dozens to hundreds of guest images running on a single host. Or to have multiple, incompatible, virtual applications running side-by-side, with the end-user unaware of all the supporting technology needed to pull it off.

This whitepaper will take an in-depth look at virtulization security risks and mitigations.
