Virtualization and information security

Virtualization, as we will expand on it later, is a method that has changed the face of the infrastructure world, and has brought with it many benefits of proper utilization, financial savings, and high survivability in the IT worlds.

At the same time, it has brought many challenges in the field of information security, challenges that the company must deal with on an ongoing basis.  Sinopia’s holistic view of infrastructure and information security enables us to provide a proper response to any of the challenges that may arise. We know how to take the virtualization environment and perform information security operations within it, and that’s how we can deal with the security challenges that come up.

What is virtualization?

In the not too distant past, organizations used to work with several servers, but as technology progressed, things began to change, and today, one central server can be relied on, and virtualization, which knows how to divide the physical server into virtual servers, can be performed on it.

Simply put – virtualization is software installed on a computer before the operating system, that provides the infrastructure on which several different operating systems can be installed on the same computer.

Which brings us to the process of creating a “virtual” version of something specific. For example: an operating system (OS), server, network resources, and more.

What are the benefits of the virtualization process?

Significant reduction in financial and personnel expenses – when an organization decides to make such a move, it saves significantly on two fronts, one financial, and the other operational. From a financial point of view, it saves organizations from spending money on physical servers, while on the operational side, it frees the IT staff from spending many hours maintaining the servers.

Greater disaster recovery capability – thanks to the virtual environment, disaster recovery is simpler, because through snapshots that provide up-to-date information, things can be backed up and restored more easily.

There is no obligation to suppliers – thanks to the virtualization process, there is compatibility between the hardware and the software, something that grants organizations great freedom to handle the material as they see fit, without being dependent on any supplier.

Expansion of the fields of virtualization

Virtualization is intended mainly for servers, but, due to the popularity it has gathered over the years, it has expanded into a number of main areas, among which are network and data storage:


Network virtualization is a method of merging the resources available on the network, by splitting the available bandwidth into different channels. Each channel remains independent, and each of them can be assigned (or reassigned) to a specific server, or to another device.


Storage virtualization is the process of storing data in a virtual store. That is, it is a procedure in which physical storage is gathered together from several network storage devices, so that it works as a single storage device. Storage virtualization has many benefits, such as reducing downtime, improving performance, and balancing loads.
