The benefits of employing virtualization in the corporate data center are compelling – lower operating
costs, better resource utilization, increased availability of critical infrastructure to name just a few. It is an
apparent “no brainer” which explains why so many organizations are jumping on the bandwagon. Industry
analysts estimate that between 60 and 80 percent of IT departments are actively working on server
consolidation projects using virtualization. But what are the challenges for operations and security staff
when it comes to management and ensuring the security of the new virtual enterprise? With new
technology, complexity and invariably new management challenges generally follow.
Over the last 18 months, Prism Microsystems, a leading security information and event management
(SIEM) vendor, working closely with a set of early adopter customers and prospects, has been working on
extending the capability of EventTracker to provide deep support for virtualization, enabling our customers
to get the same level of security for the virtualized enterprise as they have for their non-virtualized
enterprise. This White Paper examines the technology and management challenges that result from
virtualization, and how EventTracker addresses them.
