Abstract: 

As enterprises adopt virtualization technologies in their data centers, it is important to understand the risks and to employ protective measures appropriate to the sensitivity and criticality of the data. Special attention is required for storage-based technologies to ensure both data security and data resilience. In addition, cloud computing has a heavy reliance on virtualization, which can be a source of problems if not handled correctly. This session summarizes the key threats and their relevance, outlines strategies for addressing the risks, and describes the relevant virtualization security technologies that should be considered
