Virtual Machines are No Security Blanket

I’m asked at least three or four times a year about virtual machines and security. Invariably, the dialog goes something like this from a colleague I’ll refer to as Jim:

Jim: “Hey, I’m thinking of moving my physical machines to virtual ones. What do you think of that?”

Ken: “It’s a great idea, you’ll save a lot of money and you’ll love the provisioning speed, ability to move workloads around, snapshots and I could go on and on...”
