Rush to deploy virtualisation leaves security gaps

(ZDNet Australia) Server virtualisation is a no-brainer -- it's quick to deploy and easy to justify in terms of cost-savings, but too many companies are deploying the technology without considering the security implications.

Server virtualisation has been the hottest trend in enterprise IT for some time and according to IBRS analyst Kevin McIsaac, it's likely to remain that way for the next two to three years.

IBRS estimates that one in three large Australian organisations has deployed server virtualisation within their datacentre, and nearly every medium to large enterprise has at least looked at a pilot for the technology.
