Desktop Virtualization: A Vital Tool in the Cyber Security Arsenal

December 6, 2016
2:50pm - 3:20pm
Grand A/B

Virtualization has long performed a vital role in the data center: reducing hardware costs, improving reliability, simplifying housekeeping tasks such as backups and restores.  Given the current wave of  ransomware, the snapshot and export features of virtualization make it a leading candidate to thwart malware. In this session, cybersecurity expert Edward Sihler will discuss this, along with the other cyber security benefits such as tripping malware’s self-destruct before infection and support for a desktop firewall that is not part of the desktop OS.
