This year marks the 50th anniversary of what is widely recognised as the first commercially available computing platform to support virtualised environments. But even after half a century in existence - and almost two decades since the technology began to go mainstream - virtualisation all too often remains something of a weak spot in enterprises' security.
Despite the fact that research has found that the presence of virtual environments can double the cost of a security breach, many are still yet to work out how best to protect and secure the virtualised world. And, as was ever the case, this represents as big an opportunity for the channel as it does a threat for its customers.
To help our readers take advantage of this burgeoning market, Channelnomics Europe, in association with Kaspersky Lab, has created this whitepaper designed to quantify, define, and map the sector. The basis for the whitepaper is our exclusive research of senior representatives of more than 100 resellers across Europe. Our data sheds light on how well virtualisation security is understood by both the channel and end users, before examining how to decide which technology is right for each customer's needs and how best to deploy it before, finally, looking at core markets and growth projections.
