Virtualization is moving to the mainstream and may soon be overtaking non-virtualized environments as a method for deploying applications. Does this broad adoption of virtualization, though, make network security easier or more difficult to achieve? While responses to this question are still highly varied, one thing is certain: most companies still have no clear and definite security policy for their virtual environments.
Perhaps as a result of this failure to tackle the security question when deploying virtualized servers, some experts claim that the majority of virtual deployments may be less secure than physical deployments. While there are real challenges to deploying applications securely in a virtual environment, there is also a fair amount of hype surrounding the topic.
Read this whitepaper to separate the two, and understand the real need for security solutions that can address the reality of expanding virtualization. You will also learn how HP TippingPoint’s secure virtualization framework allows organizations to gain control of the virtual environment by introducing in-line security policy enforcement.
