Rogue sysadmins the target of Microsoft's new 'Shielded VM' security

Bronek Kozicki

Yes, but as I pointed out above, your first mistake was allowing the sensitive VM to be hosted in the first place. This technology makes better sense when used to tie sensitive VMs to on premises hosts, while allowing non-sensitive ones to migrate to cloud. The way Microsoft could play it (and it is curious they apparently chose not to) is that you can migrate VMs more liberally into the cloud if you have strong guarantee that some things will always remain on premises.
