Virtualization enables your organization to attain significant gains in efficiency and cost-effectiveness, along with the additional benefits of a greener consolidated datacenter, increased scalability and improved time to resource fulfillment. Unfortunately, the advantages of virtualization are balanced by increased risk exposure as virtual systems in your datacenter face many of the same security challenges as your physical servers, in addition to a number of unique challenges in protecting these IT resources. Your organization needs to consider which security mechanisms can best protect both physical and virtual servers, particularly as a virtualized architecture fundamentally affects how mission-critical applications are designed, deployed, and managed.
