Virtualization offers remarkable benefits to organizations.
However, organizations that are aggressively pursuing virtualization are not realizing the full possible return on investments in virtualization.
The primary culprit is endpoint security, specifically antimalware.
The performance numbers and related issues with traditional antimalware that this paper presents are clear – to obtain the benefits of virtualization, endpoint security must be built for virtualized environments.
When virtualizing datacenters, organizations change how:
and every aspect of the datacenter is designed, implemented, and managed.
However, too often, organizations don’t consider the need to identify new endpoint antimalware solutions.
This paper describes the problems that organizations will face when virtualizing, and solutions that will help avoid the pitfalls.
