The vast majority of cyber attacks that affect physical machines can also attack virtual machines. Moreover, the risks within virtual environments can be even higher. Although virtualization can improve IT agility and efficiency, it also adds extra layers of technology. Maintaining visibility of each layer of technology—and how they interact—can be difficult. Many virtual environments naturally contain a greater number of ‘attack surfaces’—and that gives cyber criminals more opportunities to attack the business. Virtual machines need security designed for virtual machines. Most businesses have found that, as virtualization spreads to more areas of their IT estate, their overall virtual environment becomes much more complex. Today, a typical enterprise’s virtual environment will include a wide range of different technologies—with many running under different hypervisors. Again, all of this diverse infrastructure needs to be protected against data breach and cyber attacks—but standard security technologies are not Kaspersky Lab Virtualization Security suited to virtual environments.
