Virtualization Security

Why Virtualization Security?

Can’t My Existing Physical Security Protect Virtual Systems?
Physical security devices were not designed to protect the new virtual components architecture of virtualization. Such “traditional” security depends on physical devices deployed on the perimeter of the data center or on physical networks. These physical devices depend on network inspection and are thus blind to the significant security-related activity within virtual infrastructure, whose networks they cannot see.

Virtualization brings four significant changes to security:

  • A new virtual network fabric, blind to physical security devices
  • A new threat surface: the hypervisor
  • An all-powerful virtual administrator, collapsing roles
  • Machines becoming files, leading to mobility, rapid change and opportunity for theft
