Secure Virtualization Playbook

Bluelane, the experts on Virtualization Security, publish the Virtualization Secure Playbook. I cannot stress this enough, security is the key driver to your virtualization success!

The company's VirtualShield software sits
between the host server's hypervisor and its virtual
machines and is designed to block malware
from reaching virtual machines, which could be
vulnerable to being exploited if their applications
don't have the latest patches. "It puts a force
field in front of server images; that was the 'a-ha'
behind the product," says Blue Lane president
and CEO Jeff Palmer, adding that, although
VirtualShield is currently available only for
VMware, there's nothing keeping Blue Lane from
developing VirtualShield for other vendors'
hypervisors.
Put another way, VirtualShield "plays zone
defense" for all of a system's virtual machines
rather than guarding each one individually," says
Allwyn Sequeira, senior VP of product operations
for Blue Lane Technologies. "We emulate the
behavior of a patch, so you don't have to touch
every server, although we're not replacing the
patch itself."
