Virtual Firewalls for Virtual Servers

Virtual servers are proliferating, but the security for them isn't always keeping pace. Check Point hopes to catch up with its new VPN-1 Virtual Edition, a firewall specifically built for virtual environments.

There's a good chance you already have virtual servers. There's just as good a chance you already have a Check Point firewall or two laying around your shop. With the new firewall, you can protect virtual machines as if they were physically discrete servers.

Right now, Virtual Edition only secures VMware systems. But if I were a betting man, I'd lay down some serious change on it embracing Hyper-V in the near future.

How do you secure virtual servers? Tactics welcome at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
