Virtualization provides organizations with many costs savings and significant business agility. One virtualization technology that many organizations take advantage of is called virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). VDI empowers employees and employers with many benefits, no matter the size of the organization. One such benefit with VDI is the ability to provide centrally managed desktop environments to employees on any device. In doing so, the organization can rest assured that information is always accessed and managed in a secure fashion – regardless of where the user is accessing information from.

The Impact of Virtualization on the Evolving Security Threat Landscape - IT Security teams continue to mitigate security threats with traditional security devices. But virtualization has caused the enterprise to explore new ways to extend the reach of security tools into the virtual infrastructure. With today’s distributed
application architecture that led to the growth in East-West traffic inside the hypervisor, security architects are looking for more
efficient ways to gain visibility to that traffic on behalf of their existing and next-generation security appliances, such as IDS/IPS, Web server security, integrity monitoring and malware inspection, along with several other tools.

Companies rely on the data center and IT to provide mission-critical services, like email, Web, and voice. However, assuring service delivery and reliability becomes increasingly difficult as growth in data center virtualization, remote access, cloud-based
applications, and outsourced service technologies fuel operational complexity. To improve service reliability, organizations must be able to see and manage all aspects of
performance, availability, and security related to that service.
Find out how the combination of discovery, data aggregation, correlation, out-of-the-box analytics, data management, and reporting can yield a single pane of glass into data center and IT operations and services.
The growth of virtualization has fundamentally changed the data center and raised numerous questions about data security and privacy. In fact, security concerns are the largest barrier to cloud adoption. Read this e-Book and learn how to protect sensitive data and demonstrate compliance.
Virtualization is the creation of a logical rather than an actual physical version of something. such as a storage device, hardware platform, operating system, database or network resource. The usual goal of virtualization is to centralize administrative tasks while improving resilience, scalability and performance and lowering costs. Virtualization is part of an overall trend in enterprise IT towards autonomic computing, a scenario in which the IT environment will be able to manage itself based on an activity or set of activities. This means organizations use or pay for computing resources only as they need them.
The constant growth of cloud, IoT, virtualization, mobility, and digital transformation has brought tectonic changes to the world of networking. Long viewed as a bastion of single-purpose, inflexible, and closed solutions, networks have started to transform in line with the demands for flexibility, scalability, ease of management, interoperability, and application support. Networking departments need to achieve all of the tasks above while keeping costs under control. Additionally, security requirements for the new network are not letting up — quite the opposite, as the virtualized network (and general IT) environment requires rethinking, virtualization, and evolution of security architectures.
Business evolution and technology advancements during the last decade have driven a sea change in the way data centers are funded, organized, and managed. Enterprises are now focusing on a profound digital transformation which is a continuous adjustment of technology management resources to deliver business results, guided by rapid review of desired outcomes related to end clients, resources, and budget constraints. These IT transitions are very much part of the competitive landscape, and executed correctly, they become competitive differentiators and enable bottom line growth. These outcomes are driving data centers to virtualization, service-oriented architectures, increased cybersecurity, “big data,” and “cloud,” to name a few of the key factors. This is completely rethinking and retooling the way enterprises handle the applications, data, security, and access that constitute their critical IT resources. In essence, cloud is the new IT.
Today's business environments are very different to those of 10 years ago. Windows Server 2003 has been a trusted friend for over a decade, but there are better ways to deliver against today's business expectations and technical possibilities. Download this paper to better understand the risks of ignoring the end of support and to discover the advantages of migrating to a modern data center platform.
The cloud, virtualization, and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) help make IT's life easier — and the whole organization more agile — but each of these features also presents serious security challenges. Although there is no one-size-fits-all solution to managing security in the enterprise 2.0 world, the enhanced security features and user-centric offerings in Microsoft Windows Server 2012 make security a much more comfortable proposition for IT. Read this technology brief to learn how Windows Server 2012 helps to mitigate risks and streamline compliance, as well.
With support for Windows Server 2003 ending, transitioning to Server 2012 is clearly a must for companies. While migration will be an adjustment for organizations relying on niche applications that are 10 years old, the costs of not upgrading to Server 2012 could prove fatal.

Undoubtedly you are aware of network virtualization, but perhaps you’ve yet to hear a compelling case for it. If the extended network capabilities and simplified management enabled by network virtualization aren’t compelling enough reasons, data center security should be. To manage today’s coordinated and persistent security threats, which often come from within, data centers need to implement “Zero Trust” networking. Virtualization puts it within your reach. Discover why — download this free business case white paper now.
Due to a multiplicity of users, threats and data, security has become a huge endeavor. The logical approach to solving this problem is the creation of a virtual infrastructure that can accommodate the requirements of a robust network environment, but greatly reduce the need for hardware. This white paper from BlueCoat explains the components that together make a virtualized, consolidated security infrastructure practical.
Available as a rack-mounted, hardened hardware appliance, an
Open Virtualization Format (OVF) Virtual Appliance or an Amazon
Machine Instance (AMI), CA Privileged Access Manager enhances
security by protecting sensitive administrative credentials, such as
root and administrator passwords, controlling privileged user access
and proactively enforcing policies and monitoring and recording
privileged user activity across all IT resources.
The identity and access management challenges that exist in the physical world - identity management, application security, access control, managing sensitive data, user activity logging, and compliance reporting - are even more critical in the virtual environments that are growing in use as IT seeks to streamline its operations and reduce operating costs. However, security risks are increased due to the nature of the virtualization environment and IT should seek to extend their security solutions from the physical server environment to the virtualization environment as seamlessly as possible.
Continue reading this white paper to learn how CA Content-Aware IAM solutions help protect customers in the physical world and similarly protect virtual environments by controlling identities, access, and information usage.
Virtualization promises to boost efficiency and cut costs, making it an important element in your IT department’s efforts to do more with less. Whether you’re running applications on physical or virtual machines, you still need to stay vigilant to guard against the constant and growing hazard of malware and other cyberthreats that can put your business at risk.
