Virtualization security dynamics get old, changes ahead

Virtualization and cloud computing are part and parcel of enterprise networks today. Virtualization security, however, is still a bolt-on affair rather than a service layer that is well integrated into infrastructures or tied to workloads directly. In this month's cover story, author Chris Hoff looks at where we are today and the impact of cloud computing and software defined networking on virtualization security strategies.

We also look at black hat budgeting this month. CISOs are quickly realizing that they will not always be able to keep the attackers out of their enterprise networks. Instead, defense-in-depth strategies aim to raise the cost to the attackers -- in terms of time and money -- to compromise important systems and data. And we explore the "View from the Top," the results of the (ISC)2 CXO Report, which point to a software security paradox, among other findings.
