Kaspersky Virtualization Security provides a single solution to secure both virtual servers and VDI. Because it supports all the most commonly used platforms — including VMware vSphere, Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Hyper-V and KVM. Kaspersky Virtualization Security is ideal for heterogeneous environments. The solution offers two different approaches to specialized virtualization security — both of which can be run simultaneously on different parts of your infrastructure. Agent less — one security virtual appliance per host performs malware scanning of all VMs. A light Kaspersky Security Agent on each VM significantly boosts protection. A single console means that physical and virtual machines, and mobile devices, can all be managed together. Professional help is available whenever you need it. Operating in more than 200 countries, from 34 offices worldwide, Kaspersky has you covered 24/7.
The vast majority of cyber attacks that affect physical machines can also attack virtual machines. Moreover, the risks within virtual environments can be even higher. Although virtualization can improve IT agility and efficiency, it also adds extra layers of technology. Maintaining visibility of each layer of technology — and how they interact — can be difficult. Many virtual environments naturally contain a greater number of ‘attack surfaces’ — and that gives cyber criminals more opportunities to attack the business. Virtual machines need security designed for virtual machines. Most businesses have found that, as virtualization spreads to more areas of their IT estate, their overall virtual environment becomes much more complex. Today, a typical enterprise’s virtual environment will include a wide range of different technologies — with many running under different hypervisors.
What It Gives To Your Business
With Kaspersky Security for Virtualization Agent less protecting your VMware environment, you need only install one instance of the security software on the virtual host to secure every VM running on that host. For KVM, Microsoft Hyper-V and Citrix XenServer, Kaspersky Virtualization Security Light Agent delivers protection using just one virtual appliance on each virtual host and a very small agent on each virtual machine. Because the Kaspersky Virtualization Security Light Agent solution also runs on VMware, you can choose which solution is best for different areas of your VMware environment such as Agent less for non critical virtual servers. Light Agent for robust protection of virtual desktop infrastructure and business critical servers. The vast majority of cyber-attacks that affect physical machines can also attack virtual machines (VMs). In fact, virtualization can actually increase your levels of security risk.
Centralized Management Saves You Time
Kaspersky Virtualization Security includes Kaspersky Security Center — an application that’s designed to save you time on security administration. Kaspersky Security Center includes a unified management console that gives you centralized control over security on all your virtual machines. If you’re also running other Kaspersky Lab security technologies, the console provides centralized management of security across all your protected endpoints and servers, desktops, laptops, mobiles and virtual machines. Native integration of our agentless solution with the VMware NSX platform means your virtual infrastructure has just became even more efficient and profitable. From now on, your VMware vSphere with NSX infrastructure and its security layers work in harness, bringing new levels of automation and policy driven security. With Kaspersky Virtualization Security Agentless, protection of every single VM happens instantly and automatically.
Kaspersky Virtualization Security
Kaspersky Virtualization Security provides a single solution to secure both virtual servers and VDI. Because it supports all the most commonly used platforms — including VMware vSphere with NSX, Citrix XenServer, and Microsoft Hyper-V. Kaspersky Virtualization Security is ideal for hybrid software-defined data centers. Based on anti-malware engine, the solution exploits the technological advantages that virtualization offers, delivering powerful security with optimum speed and efficiency, and without taking up valuable space on virtual machines. Kaspersky Virtualization Security Light Agent is ideal for Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (VDI), delivering the most advanced security capabilities to the individual machine. With the lightweight security agent integrated into the VDI template, you can enable resource-efficient protection from the most advanced threats on every single VM, with no adverse effect on end-user experience.
