Virtual Desktop Security

Is a VDI environment more secure than a traditional environment? Or is it just a solution for better management of your desktops? Is it more or less secure than a terminal server based environment?

Is having antivirus incorporated in the hypervisor better for security or is it just providing easier management?

How do you protect the access clients?

All these topics are being discussed in this roundtable podcast. Well worth a listen.

Sound quality is not optimal all the way through the podcast, but it's still a good discussion.
