Virtualization has changed the way IT administrators build their infrastructure by enabling multiple systems and applications to co-exist on a single server. With rapid deployments and performance increases, it is no surprise that most organizations are making the shift to virtualization.
As organizations move to a virtualized infrastructure, it’s smart to consider how to leverage virtualization, ultimately improving security as well. There are a number of security benefits to be derived from virtualizing an organization’s IT infrastructure.
While the benefits of virtualization are many, new attack surfaces present themselves as companies build their own private clouds. Organizations that are virtualizing network resources such as desktop environments, mail infrastructures, and web applications should also proactively strategize how to secure the components being virtualized, as well as the infrastructure itself.
