Securing Virtualized Data Centers
Analysts estimate 30% of today’s data center workloads are being virtualized and this number continues grow. As such, the need to provide the same intrusion protection system or IPS security for applications in virtualized and non-virtualized data centers is a must. In short applications on virtualized servers need the same protections as applications running on non-virtualized servers. To meet that end 3Com has launched its Secure Network Fabric and TippingPoint’s Secure Virtualization Framework. Alan Kessler, President of TippingPoint is my guest to discuss these initiatives and how they solve the problem of securing applications running on and off virtualized servers.
