InSecurity Podcast: Jeremiah Cornelius on Securing Data in Virtual Environments

“Do you belive that my being stronger or faster
has anything to do with my muscles in this place? 
You think that's air you're breathing now?”
-        Morpheus, The Matrix

Today’s question: What happens when you assume virtual security?

Virtual Machines (VMs) were originally created to solve the problems of managing PC systems with mostly Windows operating systems, as a replacement for more resilient and fault tolerant technology that Intel PCs were replacing in enterprise computing.

Things have evolved significantly since then, but with great technology comes great security risk. What can we do to mitigate that risk and protect that virtual reality?

In this week’s episode of InSecurity, Matt Stephenson digs deep into the weeds of the virtual world with industry legend Jeremiah Cornelius. They talk about what’s easy and what’s hard about securing data in virtual environments. Stick around… you might just learn a little something about the nature of reality.
