The benefits of ESET Virtualization Security for VMware

Our agentless security solution for VMware environments

By leveraging VMware agentless technology, protecting compatible hypervisors is as simple as using ESET Virtualization Security Appliance. The solution is natively compatible with ESET Remote Administrator 6, ESET’s web-based console for rapid task execution and complete endpoint security management.

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 machine is proven clean it is returned to original place.

3rd party integration
ESET Virtualization Security supports native integration with 3rd party security solutions, using VMware Service Composer.

vMotion supported
When VMs are moved from one host where the solution is installed to a different host where ESET Virtualization is installed, the VM keeps its security settings and remains protected.

vCenter supported
The information displayed in ESET Remote Administrator 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.

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 support of vMotion optimum performance from the whole virtual environment is ensured.

Remote management
The solution is fully manageable via ESET Remote Administrator. Physical and virtual machines are managed from a single point, allowing role-based management and a "look & see" web-console dashboard with drill-down capabilities that can be used to execute any action that is required.

Easy deployment
Automatic deployment of new ESET Virtualization Security appliances to hosts newly connected to NSX Manager allowing instant protection of newly added virtual hosts, and virtualized workloads.

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.
