Re: Old Guard VS New tech
I certainly think it is interesting to consider the impact virtualization can have on security. 

There will be new tools that enable systems to better protect themselves via the "walls" of virtualization. However, I don't expect hackers to simply stop devising ways around technology like virtiualization. That's something key to keep in mind.

@briandnewby I do not know much about US gov. but in Canada our Gov. most of the time ride the hype... just trying covering up the problem instead of adopting and implementing new technology....

Re: Old Guard VS New tech
Well, I've worked in government for 12 years. I think the acceptance for virtualization is there. I'm not so sure the functionality, or the expectation of functionality, is there, though. Whether that's government's fault or virtualization's fault...that's a riddle, I guess.

Re: Old Guard VS New tech
That's a good point. Just when will government agencies be comfortable, willing and able to move to virtualiztion? Will they lag behind due to available budgets or lack of coordination among various agencies tied to the state or local decision makers?

Re: Old Guard VS New tech
It was interesting to learn that one of the security pluses for virtualization is that "ransomware is programmed to not install if it detects a virtual instance being run." That in itself would surely by a great reason to implement, expecially for those firms who have or expect ot run into ransomware problems sometime.

Old Guard VS New tech
My question is how does government catch up to the new, virtualizing world? Much of government relies not just on physical servers and secured, citrix connections, but also tokens, keys or badges to access networks. This seems to be the anti-virtualization and the government is only increasing the methods and manners of secure log in. Its conterproductive to have to process through so many steps and be extermely limited to specific access points. If virtualization really is a better way, what will it take to get goverment on board?
