The Importance of Security in Virtualization


The term virtualization broadly describes the separation of a service request from the underlying physical delivery of that service. In general, it is divided into major categories – network virtualization, storage virtualization, desktop virtualization, server virtualization and application virtualization. All areas of virtualization are vulnerable to attacks if security is not properly architected and monitored.

2009 is proving to be a year for massive security improvements in virtualized environments. Enterprises now understand the special requirements and opportunities in this new world and security vendors are adapting their products to integrate more tightly with virtualization platforms. Major regulatory standards, such as PCI (Payment Card Industry) DSS are directly addressing virtualization security requirements in 2009.

As virtualization grows in popularity and continues to demonstrate tangible benefits along the way, companies are realizing they must develop and define virtualization security guidelines.
