Security Challenges in the Virtual Datacenter
Securing virtualization is complicated by datacenter risks and those unique to virtualized environments. Enterprises rush to embrace virtualization benefits by implementing traditionally built security solutions, which results in unwanted outcomes.
As effective as today’s malware detection may be in physical environments, implementing a solution designed for these environments creates new challenges in the virtual world by not taking into account their inherent differences.
These challenges directly impact the ability of enterprise virtualization efforts in their movement from cost-efficiency to quality of services and ultimately, to business agility. It is this last stage where IT can truly be delivered as a service – or via a cloud – and business can request these services on-demand.
