Why Operating Systems Virtualization Is The Future of Security

February 10, 2020 / Marc Gaffan

Endpoint security is the holy grail for many enterprises and is also an oxymoron. No matter how many security tools you layer on, or how locked-down user devices are, determined cybercriminals can still ferret through the cracks. That’s why the best cybersecurity approach is to use virtualization technology to isolate operating systems that limits your exposure and keeps your sensitive corporate assets safe. There are several ways enterprises leverage virtual machines to enhance endpoint security, including virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), browser virtualization, application virtualization, and operating system virtualization. The first three address only a small fraction of the vulnerability landscape. They also introduce latency, interoperability, and hardware resource consumption issues that can hurt user productivity.
