The benefits of ESET Virtualization Security for VMware
Our agentless security solution for VMware environments
By leveraging VMware agentless technology, protecting compatible hypervisors is as simple as using the ESET Virtualization Security Appliance. The solution is natively compatible with ESET Remote Administrator 6, ESET’s web-based console for rapid task execution and complete endpoint security management.
Native support of NSX automation
Supports Micro Segmentation and automatic task execution that automatically moves infected machines to a different micro-segment, to prevent malware spread, and executes scanning. Once a machine is proven clean, it is returned to its original place.
3rd party integration
ESET Virtualization Security supports native integration with 3rd party security solutions, using VMware Service Composer.
When VMs are moved from one host where the solution is installed to a different host where ESET Virtualization is installed, the VM keeps its security settings and remains protected.
The information displayed in ESET Remote Administrator is the same as in the vCenter. It also simplifies deployment, as all components can be deployed using a tool which connects to the VMware vCenter.
Optimized for high performance
ESET's scanning engine is well known for its low system demands and high speed, thus leaving more resources for other applications and processes. In combination with support of vMotion, optimum performance from the whole virtual environment is ensured.
The solution is fully manageable via ESET Remote Administrator. Physical and virtual machines are managed from a single point, allowing role-based management and a "look & see" web-console dashboard with drill-down capabilities that can be used to execute any action that is required.
Automatic deployment of new ESET Virtualization Security appliances to hosts newly connected to NSX Manager allows instant protection of the newly added virtual hosts.
Low system demands
All on-access and on-demand scanning tasks are offloaded via VMware tools to a centralized scanner inside the ESET Virtualization Security Appliance, effectively preventing AV storms and performance issues.
How ESET Virtualization Security for VMware will help your business
Easy to deploy
Once ESET Remote Administrator – which comes as a virtual appliance too – is installed, ESET Virtualization Security appliances can be deployed on multiple hosts at once.
VM infrastructure is about optimizing resources and performance, and ESET’s scanning engine exactly meets these requirements. It is well known for its low system demands and high speed, thus leaving more resources for other applications and processes.
No AV storms
All on-access and on-demand scanning tasks are offloaded via VMware tools to a centralized scanner inside the ESET Virtualization Security appliance, effectively preventing AV storms and performance issues.
- Virtual appliance compatible with VMware vSphere 5.5+
