Embedded Virtualization Enables Consolidated Cyber Security Solution Protecting Windows Clients

Version 2

    The use of firewalls and VPN appliances is an effective means to guard exposure of connected devices. Without them, Windows-based systems can be easily compromised by DOS attacks, zero day vulnerabilities, and other nefarious activities. Effective use of embedded virtualization provides a partitioned platform approach to consolidate hardened firewall and VPN software stacks into virtual appliances resulting in single system with multiple, autonomous operating environments. This white paper details only one example of how this unique approach easily solves difficult consolidation challenges without proprietary workloads or extensive para-virtualization.
