Hardware Assisted Virtualization to Mitigate Security Risks

In this podcast Intel's Malcolm Harkins and HP's Manny Novoa chat about the latest issues in security technologies, notably the emergence of hardware assisted virtualization.

With the emergence of software virtualization technologies, allowing for multiple OS's to be run on a single system, Manny and Malcom postulate security risks at the software layer. They discuss how hardware assisted virtualization can establish the management of platform controls and protection of keys at the hardware level, reducing the risk of virtualization systems being maliciously compromised.

They also discuss coping with zero-day threats and the benefits of automated management of PC fleets
