The Dynamic Nature of Virtualization Security - The need for real-time vulnerability management and risk assessment
The cornerstones of a proactive security strategy are vulnerability management and risk assessment. However, traditional “scan-and-patch” vulnerability scanning approaches are inadequate for dynamic, virtualized environments.
Traditional scanners cannot track changes in real time, so they cannot accurately measure constantly changing risks.
Anyone charged with securing IT assets needs to understand the dynamic security risks inherent to virtualized environments, and more importantly, what to do to mitigate those risks. This whitepaper explores the challenges of securing a virtualized environment and gives actionable solutions to address them.
