Singapore June 3, 2010 – As virtualization cuts across the globe by improving the availability and efficiency of IT resources in all data center, Questex Media organized a Virtualization and Storage Symposium Conference. This event was designed to bring clarity and understanding between virtual servers and data center infrastructure and the impact of a virtualized infrastructure on storage.

Jay Bavisi, President of EC-Council, was invited to keynote the event, and his presentation focused on virtualization security. During the highly informative session, Jay shared the highlights of effective security management in a virtual environment.
