Until recently, virtualization in the SMB market has been lagging a bit behind virtualization in the enterprise. Channel partners have begun to virtualize SMB servers and roll out virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) across PCs, notebooks, tablets and smart phones. But in this environment of ubiquitous information access, SMBs (and enterprise organizations alike) are becoming increasingly concerned about protection, causing channel partners to take notice. With this in mind, what are the security opportunities for channel partners in the virtualized world?

If your customers are virtualizing their servers, it’s time to think about what security concerns need to addressed in this new type of environment.

To keep SMBs safe, preventing malware infections that can bring down a virtual machine and cripple a network is a good first step. It’s important to maximize performance in virtual server environments without sacrificing powerful security that can protect against the broad spectrum of highly sophisticated and constantly evolving threats, including malware, zero-day attacks and rootkits.
