The prospect of more agility and the increasing cost and complexity of IT has contributed to the rapid adoption of virtualization technologies that facilitates to build and deploy IT releases and changes faster and more economically. There are counterclaims whether virtualized environments are fundamentally no less secure than physical ones, and that virtualization can actually enable better security. Security must be baked in from conception, not addressed later. But since virtualization is already here, what steps can be taken to implement effective security controls? And how does one do this in a way that creates value rather than the perception of information security creating bureaucratic barriers? Learn Gene Kim’s practical steps to mitigate security risks of virtual environments.
