IBM embeds security into virtualisation
Software Fort Knox
IBM researchers claim to have developed "Fort Knox-like" mainframe-like security directly into virtualization and management software that are already deployed inside data centres.
Ironically the name of the technologies is sHype, and it runs in conjunction with commercial and open source hypervisors. What it does is that it throws a security "wrapper" around distributed workloads in heterogeneous x86 and blade environments. sHype establishes a virtual machine acts like a data centre "security foreman" and uses user-set policies to lock down the data centre's contents.
