New security concerns raised by the software-defined trend

Eric Chiu, president of security vendor HyTrust, talks about the new security concerns and compliance challenges that IT administrators will face in the software-defined data center.

When administrators can securely virtualize all workloads, they can move to the cloud more quickly. HyTrust aims to help IT shops achieve these goals by mitigating the concentration of risk and the potential for catastrophic failure that virtualization and cloud introduce by introducing a tag-based policy method and promoting an inside-out approach to security.

Chiu witnessed all the software-defined talk at VMworld 2013. Watch this video to get his insight on how data centers can implement software-defined technology more successfully.
