A new survey has found that a majority of businesses have security intensive environments with more than 90 percent of workloads requiring protection.

The survey–conducted jointly by Altor Networks and Juniper Networks–gathered responses from the representatives of m0re than 200 firms at San Francisco’s Moscone-hosted VMworld 2010. Despite moving forward with virtualization, survey participants acknowledged they are mixing workloads of varying importance on the same virtual machine hosts and that their efforts to secure them would benefit greatly from solutions bridging the gap between physical and virtual security.

More than 70 percent of respondents said they are mixing workloads on the same hosts, and well over a third believe the best way to secure them is with solutions that merge physical and virtual network management constructs into a single view.

The survey participants were also asked about how often changes like VM additions or deletions take place in their virtual networks with more than 55 percent reporting changes occurring multiple times a day. This rate of change far exceeds what is possible in a physical network and clearly points to the need for automation in the monitoring and controlling of virtualized network security and compliance.
