    Companies have been warned not to rush into adopting virtualisation technology as hurrying could leave them at risk of security threats.

    If companies adopt virtualisation too quickly, the best security practices could be overlooked according to analyst Gartner. In some cases the best security technology may not even be available yet.

    Virtualisation is the simultaneous running of several operating systems on a single desktop or server.

    The technology is intended to reduce costs and increase agility but if security issues are not fully addressed Gartner says the opposite could happen.
