Security - is your VM as secure as your physical machines?
I spotted this post on CTOEdge about "How Virtualization and Cloud Computing Will Change Security":

"The virtues of virtualization and cloud computing will figure into most enterprise IT infrastructure discussions during 2010. Virtualization has already proved it can save money through server consolidation and better use of resources. Greater use of the technology across server infrastructures, in other areas of the IT stack, and at the desktop is widely anticipated. The uptake of software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications such as salesforce.com, and the success of IT service outsourcing demonstrate how centralized remote computing approaches also can provide more efficient ways to deliver technology resources to users, helping cloud computing to gain greater buy-in from corporate decision-makers. But as the industry moves toward a new IT infrastructure play, what are the implications on IT security?"

Are you concerned about security on your VM or server?

Do you have a method of ensuring that your VM is as secure as your physical machines? How are you managing this?
