Blue Lane designed its VirtualShield security technology to protect VMs no matter what the state of the
patches in each individual guest OS. Runs in close integration with VMware’s hypervisor, preventing attacks on known
vulnerabilities from penetrating to the VMs.
Blue Lane’s VirtualShield product for VMware aims to protect virtual machines even in cases where certain
patches are out of date. The software can also automatically scan for possible problems, update problem areas and protect
against some remote threats. That could be an added layer of comfort, while the traditional security and management vendors
catch up, some security experts say.
