Suggestion of security audit framework for virtual desktop infrastructure: A case study of Citrix XenDesktop

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Traditional desktop infrastructures evolve to incorporate new paradigms such as Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) since it improves agility, security and productivity for business. VDI also creates additional security challenges and risks including data leakage, lack of visibility, and single point of failure and shielding critical desktops. Knowing this and having a well-developed security governance strategy in place is critical for success. This paper uses COBIT 5 for Assurance and COBIT 5 for Risk as guidance to develop a security audit framework illustrated by an audit program in Citrix XenDesktop VDI environment. The proposed audit framework can assist organizations to mitigate the risk and
    optimize the performance of VDI deployment.
