SANS: Next-Generation Datacenters = Next-Generation Security

The rapid shift to virtualized and cloud-based infrastructure, both internally and hosted within cloud service provider environments, opens new layers of risk to IT resources. In this paper, we break down the foundations of a virtual infrastructure, examine security tools and controls that are available for these layers, present the pros and cons of different approaches, and take a look at some new technology that may allow security teams to implement more flexible and capable protection models in virtual and cloud-based datacenters.
