Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware Protection for Virtual Desktops
Not all anti-virus solutions are made equal. One player that continues to come up with solutions for the corporate is Kaspersky. For companies that wish to adopt VDI or Virtual Desktops, Kaspersky offer an agentless anti-malware approach to virtualisation.
Adopters of VDI realise the benefits include lower cost, rapid deployment, and fast ROI however there is still a need to protect those desktops from malicious attacks. In a mixed environment with VDI endpoints and physical machines you need an anti-virus and anti-malware solution to manage both and automate the process of how the protection is enabled.
When a new virtual endpoint is created, Kaspersky Lab’s solution promptly provides it with the necessary
protection. The solution is automatically set up on VMware, Citrix VDI-in-a-box, Microsoft Remote Desktops and other types of virtual machines. The new endpoint is also automatically connected to the administration console. The solution can differentiate virtual endpoints from physical endpoints and unite them into separate groups, providing maximum convenience when working with a virtual infrastructure. Kaspersky Lab’s solution can randomise tasks for virtual endpoints based on one host system.
Resourceintensive tasks can be performed by virtual machines at different times, optimising the load on system resources and getting the most efficient performance from a virtual infrastructure Kaspersky Lab’s solution can automatically detect non-persistent virtual endpoints and delete them from the administration console. This ensures the administrator has the very latest information about the security status of the corporate infrastructure.
Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Windows, in conjunction with Kaspersky Security Center 9, provides fast and easy protection for virtual endpoints, optimizing system performance and decreasing the administrator’s workload, meaning you can derive the maximum benefits of running virtual machines.
