s Virtualization Under Control? Current Opinions on Security and Controls for Virtual Servers in Production Environments

To learn how deeply virtualization is expanding within production server environments and see if security, change controls and compliance requirements are keeping pace, Tripwire surveyed 170 IT professionals from multiple functional groups and organizational levels. The results show virtualization has clearly gained a lasting foothold and that the strength of IT process controls on virtual servers is on par with those implemented in the physical realm. The study found that many of those charged with managing virtualization infrastructure is understaffed and inadequately equipped, making the likelihood of server misconfiguration high. Read this white paper to learn more about the state of virtualization today and why 69% of the respondents agree that a dedicated configuration tool is needed and two-thirds are in the process of evaluating or planning to acquire such a tool.
