Trust Running Low on Virtual Security
Survey finds inadequate budgets and poor hypervisor controls at top of list.
Have you implemented separation of duty best practices so that IT personnel responsible for the provisioning of virtual machines and the virtual infrastructure are separate from other admin groups?
In the rush to virtualization, security isn't keeping pace. A survey by Prism Microsystems found inadequate budgets for security, poor hypervisor controls and low confidence in virtual environment security. The April survey of 300 IT managers, security personnel, auditors and administrators found companies trying to make do when project budgets skimp on security, but also often not following established best practices for securing the virtualization layer.
