Whitepaper: Server virtualization and network management
Posted on 10 April 2014.
Server virtualization brings new opportunities but also risks. Professional network management makes these risks manageable.


Virtualization works by freeing applications from the constraints of a single physical server. It allows multiple applications to run on one server, but equally important, it allows one application to use resources across the corporate network.

From a security standpoint, centralizing multiple applications on a single box creates single points of failure, both in the physical server itself, and in its network connection. When a virtualized server crashes, or its network connection slows or breaks, it impacts all the applications on that box.

This increases the need for strong network management. A highly virtualized environment lives or dies on the efficiency and dependability of its data network. Failure of a physical server, connection, switch or router can be very costly when it disconnects knowledge workers, automated factory floors or online retail operations from vital IT functionality.

Chrome extension thwarts user profiling based on typing behavior

Infosec consultant Paul Moore came up with a working solution to thwart a type of behavioral profiling. The result is a Chrome extension called Keyboard Privacy, which prevents profiling of users by the way they type by randomizing the rate at which characters reach the DOM.
