Virtualisation is the key to security woes

While IT shops and vendors struggle to apply security practices to virtualised systems, a Start-up called Bromium claims it will turn the question on its head, using virtualisation to secure all types of devices.  The idea is that a hypervisor can isolate and protect applications, turning the platform into the security tool. Bromium has some big names, particularly from Citrix and the community around the Xen hypervisor. Bromium co-founder and CTO Simon Crosby, said the question of how to secure virtualised systems, as opposed to using virtualisation to secure everything else, is “a yawn in my view.”
