IBM Uses 'Virtual Doorman' to Lock Down Cloud Computing

New rootkit detection system could make it easier to detect attacks on virtualized systems.

NY Times: IBM's new Virtual Protection System can help administrators defend their systems against hard-to-detect rootkit attacks. The new tool can find malicious software in any of the virtual machines running on a server, acting as a "virtual doorman" to keep malware out of the data center.

"I don't want to have 10 copies of antivirus running" on one server, explained IBM's JR Rao. "If one firewall can protect 10 of these virtual machines, that's what I want to do."
