Virtualization is secure, says VMware

Virtualization may be catching on in the enterprise space, but there are some who are still cautious of the technology over security and speed concerns.

Paul Ducklin, head of technology for the Asia-Pacific region at Sophos, told ZDNet Asia that the security vendor takes a "somewhat neutral" stance toward virtualization.

Virtualization, Ducklin noted, can be very handy in analyzing or working with malicious code. But Sophos does not employ virtualization in its virus labs as it "can't necessarily trust" that the host machine and virtual machine remain as separate and isolated components.
