I am excited to announce my latest research, The CISO's Guide To Virtualization Security. This is the first report in a new series focusing on securing virtual environments. The reduced costs and flexibility of virtualization have led to widespread adoption of the technology. Despite this adoption, security and risk professionals haven't given their virtual environments the attention that is required. Our research interviews revealed several themes:
As organizations seek to increase virtual server utilization and navigate a complex compliance landscape, it is critical that Security & Risk Professionals take a fresh look into the security of your virtual environments. If you haven't done this, now is the time. As Mark Twain said, "better late than never." You should strive for virtual security that is at least on par with your traditional security and look for opportunities to implement better security and visibility within your virtual environment. In this report, we discuss the challenges and risks associated with virtual environments, and make recommendations on how to get into the virtualization security game.
Please join me for a webcast discussing this report on Thursday, February 23 from 1:00 p.m.-2:00 p.m. Eastern time.
In the future, we will be writing a detailed report on Zero Trust within virtual environments including guidance for virtual desktop deployments. If you have any questions or comments please let me know.
