Virtualization Security was one of the BIG Deals at VMworld with several announcements:
- VMware vShield Edge, App, and End Point
- Trend Micro will have the first product making use of vShield End Point
- Cisco Virtual Security Gateway (VSG)
- HyTrust and their growing list of technology partners
But the biggest news is that Virtualization Security is finally on the radar of most if not all C-level as it is now seen as the gate to entering the cloud. But before we can solve the cloud security issue we have to solve the virtualization security issues. VMware’s announcement has the most impact on the virtualization security ecosystem. At once they are competing head-to-head with some vendors while providing a platform to use for other vendors.
