ESET Virtualization Security Is Now Available

ESET’s new agentless security solution for VMware vShield environments avoids troublesome AV storms.

ESET®, a global pioneer in IT security for more than two decades, today announces the launch of ESET Virtualization Security. This brand new VMware vShield-based agentless solution combines an ESET Virtualization Security appliance with ESET Remote Administrator to deliver ESET’s award-winning scanning core allied with proven management capability.

ESET Virtualization Security will be available from today in all regions except North America, where it will be launched on March 1st, 2016.

According to a Gartner Magic Quadrant* survey in 2015, “about 75% of x86 server workloads are virtualized”.  Virtualization brings countless benefits to companies, but without adequate protection of virtual systems it can be more dangerous than it seems.

ESET Virtualization Security was developed to protect sensitive data and to solve the main problems that companies experience when adopting virtualization, such as unprotected virtual servers, the need for multiple vendors to protect physical and virtualized environments, potential performance impacts and complicated licensing.

 “ESET Virtualization Security was developed for virtualized environments, meaning that as a GUI-less appliance it is easy to deploy, set up and operate. Its trademark light system footprint make the solution ideal for avoiding AV storms,” said Michal Jankech, Product Manager at ESET. “Moreover, ESET Virtualization Security is easy to manage thanks to ESET Remote Administrator, which gives IT administrators unlimited access anywhere, anytime.” 

ESET Virtualization Security is compatible with VMware vSphere 5.0 + with installed vCloud Networking and Security. It is consistent with ESET’s next-generation business products and its web-based console ESET Remote Administrator.
