Virtualization roadblocks

Increased adoption of virtualization means better business for system security vendors. Larry Dignan elaborates.

But I just wonder. Why would virtualization majors don’t take up the task on their own? When you release a product, you can fix a bug in it better than any external security vendor. You know where you’d gone wrong and what needs to be patched up. Why would you leave a lifeline to someone else?

I agree with Larry as he says “If anything, virtualization will be in place before anyone notices the security issues. There’s something about saving so much on hardware, easy server provisioning and more IT flexibility that overshadows any security worries.”

It’s a bit like parenting, I suppose. You can sire kids. You just can’t mend them :)
