VMware virtual environment security

BitDefender UK : 27 February, 2012  (New Product)
Security for Virtualised Environments from BitDefender integrated with vShield 5 Endpoint from VMware
VMware virtual environment security
Bitdefender has announced the integration of VMware vShield 5 Endpoint and Security for Virtualised Environments. The combined technologies give customers de-duplication capabilities of antimalware functions, using a series of proprietary cache mechanisms, which greatly improves consolidation ratios in VMware environments.  

Until now, organisations have been forced to take traditional security approaches to protecting virtual environments, which created high operating costs and significant performance bottlenecks. The new approach to security saves resources and maximises consolidation ratios in virtualised datacenters without sacrificing security.

“We congratulate Bitdefender for meeting all VMware requirements for complete integration with VMware vShield 5 Endpoint™ security technologies,” said Parag Patel, Vice President, Global Strategic Alliances, VMware. “The combined virtualisation and security expertise of VMware and Bitdefender will deliver on-going value to our customers by offloading key antimalware functions to a security virtual machine for improved performance.”

“Given the complexity and growth of virtualised environments, traditional endpoint security approaches are highly inefficient, lacking in scalability and quickly proving to be ineffective,” said Bogdan Dumitru, CTO, Bitdefender. “Working with industry leaders in virtualisation, our security solutions leverage technologies like VMware vShield to optimise performance and ensure that enterprises protect their valuable data, while reducing financial and operational burdens associated with other security approaches.”

With Security for Virtualised Environments by Bitdefender, VMware customers have significant advantages such as centralised scanning and management capabilities in a single-instance or agentless security model. In addition, the combined VMware and Bitdefender technologies extend protection offered to guest VMs, by adding memory and process scanning using the lightweight in-guest Bitdefender Silent Agent with patent-pending caching technologies, saving crucial resources of any physical hosts. Unlike other solutions, Security for Virtualised Environments by Bitdefender also simultaneously protects virtualised Windows, Linux and Solaris systems – both servers and desktops.
