Executive Brief: How can I Overcome the Security Challenges of Today's Virtualized Infrastructures?
According to Gartner, "through 2012, 60% of virtualized servers will be less secure than the physical servers they replace, dropping to 30% by Year End 2015." So regardless of how "physical" or "virtual" an infrastructure is, it's clear that the need for complete security management is paramount. Organizations hoping to achieve this, can begin by:
- Managing Roles, identities and applications
- Controlling the access to privileged users
- Improving audibility and compliance
