Number of the Week: 54% of businesses in GCC region are not securing their virtual infrastructure
Conducted in March 2012, the survey reveals that the level of virtual infrastructure adoption is high. In particular, 61% of GCC companies are currently implementing or have already implemented server virtualization, 27% plan to implement a virtual desktop infrastructure and 30% plan data storage virtualization. The survey also indicates that experience of using virtualization technologies is considerable: in GCC this figure is slightly less than two years.
43% of GCC professionals working in IT believe that the security risks in a virtual environment are lower or significantly lower than those for physical infrastructure. The more justified perception of virtual security risks being at least equal to those in a physical environment is shared by 42% of IT pros.
The low adoption level of virtualization-specific security solutions cannot be explained by their complexity. As an example, the recent Kaspersky Security for Virtualization solution from Kaspersky Lab is fully compatible with the VMware platform and is easy to deploy thanks to its agent-less approach. The solution is installed as a security appliance for each physical host, and automatically protects all virtual machines running on it. There is no need to install and maintain the security solution on a virtual machine itself. At the same time, Kaspersky Security for Virtualization can be integrated into the wider IT security infrastructure where physical and virtual machines as well as mobile devices are protected and centrally managed by Kaspersky Lab's solutions.
