From Secure Virtualization to Secure Private Cloud
As enterprises move beyond virtualizing their data centers to build private cloud-computing infrastructures, security must evolve to support this. Whether securing physical data centers, virtualized data centers or private clouds, the fundamental tenets of information security don't change — ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, authenticity, access, and audit of our information and workloads. While the fundamental principles of information security don't change in a private cloud environment, how enterprises provision and deliver security services must change. This paper outlines the foundational capabilities that will be required from enterprise security infrastructure to secure private cloud computing.
