Virtualization Defined - Eight Different Ways

October 4, 2021

Virtualization
Virtualization as a concept is not new; computational environment virtualization has been around since the first mainframe systems. But recently, the term “virtualization” has become ubiquitous, representing any type of process obfuscation where a process is somehow removed from its physical operating environment. Because of this ambiguity, virtualization can almost be applied to any and all parts of an IT infrastructure. For example, mobile device emulators are a form of virtualization because the hardware platform normally required to run the mobile operating system has been emulated, removing the OS binding from the hardware it was written for. But this is just one example of one type of virtualization; there are many defi nitions of the term “virtualization” fl oating around in the current lexicon, and all (or at least most) of them are correct, which can be quite confusing.

Virtualized Networks and Real Risks: Best Practices for Securing Network Function Virtualization Environment

whitePaper | October 3, 2022

Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) is unleashing fundamental innovation in the way organizations buy, deploy, and operate network infrastructures. By leveraging open standards and commodity hardware, NFV delivers cost savings, enhanced flexibility, improved performance, and more. However, without the right safeguards, organizations can also see their vulnerabilities increase when they move to a Virtualized Network Functions (VNF) architecture. This white paper offers a detailed look at the unique security implications of adopting NFV approaches, and it provides a number of best practices to employ to ensure sensitive data and transmissions remain secure in these environments.
