VMware and Trend Micro have partnered to deliver the first agentless security platform for VMware. Designed for both virtualized desktops and datacenters, the joint solution includes the following components:
Deep Security options for VMware virtual machines:
Anti-Malware integrates with VMware APIs to provide agentless anti-malware protection for VMware virtual machines with zero in-guest footprint. Optimizes security operations to avoid antivirus storms commonly seen in full system scans and pattern updates.
Integrity Monitoring available in agentless form factor, ensures timely protection against known and zero-day attacks by detecting and reporting malicious and unexpected changes to files, systems registry and hypervisor in real time.
Web Reputation available in agentless form factor, leverages Trend MicroTM Smart Protection Network and to strengthen protection against web threats for servers and virtual desktops by safeguarding users and applications by blocking access to malicious URLs.
Intrusion Detection and Prevention provides agentless vulnerability shielding for virtualized data centers by shielding known vulnerabilities from unlimited exploits in critical systems until a patch is deployed or in place of a future patch that may never materialize. Enables PCI compliance by defending against vulnerabilities and identifies malicious software accessing the network.
Firewall decreases the attack surface of physical, cloud and virtual servers with central management of server firewall policy using bi-directional stateful firewall. Supports virtual machine zoning and prevents Denial of Service attacks.
Log Inspection provides visibility into important security events buried in log files with collection and analysis of operating system and application logs, security events and administrative events across a datacenter.
