    • These days, anything can be virtualized… . Servers, Endpoints, Users, Networks, Storage, Mobile, etc. How does this change the security paradigm?
    • Back to Basics… A VM or VDI is intrinsically no more secure than a physical system A VM or VDI needs Anti-Malware Protection
    • Virtualisation adds additional challenges…• The Protection Gap VM VM VM• Anti-Virus storms• Large footprint MA MA MA OS OS OS• Security tied to hypervisor APIs• Shared resources but hypervisor ignorance Datacenter• Offline images fall behind
