ESET Virtualization Security performs agentless anti-malware scanning of machines using VMware infrastructure or another virtualization solution, which keeps your devices secured in all environments, including NSX and vShield platforms.
Easy to deploy
Automatic deployment of new ESET Virtualization Security appliances to hosts currently connected to NSX Manager. It allows automatic protection of added virtual hosts, and virtualized workloads. This drastically reduces the time needed for security deployment.
Fully automated VDI support
A comprehensive hardware detection algorithm is used to determine the identity of the machine based on its hardware. This allows automated re-imaging and cloning of non-persistent hardware environments.
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.
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 the original place.
When VMs are moved from one host to a different one, where ESET Virtualization is installed, the VM keeps its security settings and remains them fully protected.
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 the support of vMotion optimum performance from the whole virtual environment is ensured.
Once ESET Security Management Center – which comes as a virtual appliance too – is installed, ESET Virtualization Security appliances can be deployed on multiple hosts at once.
3rd party integration
ESET Virtualization Security supports native integration with 3rd party security solutions, using VMware Service Composer.
The information displayed in ESET Security Management Center 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.
The solution is manageable via ESET Security Management Center. Physical and virtual machines are managed from a single point, allowing a role-based administration and a “look & see” web-console dashboard with drill-down capabilities that can be used to execute any action that is required.
Low system demands
All on-access and on-demand scanning tasks are offloaded via VMware tools to a centralized scanner inside ESET Virtualization Security Appliance, effectively preventing AV storms and performance issues.
