To ensure your investment in virtualization keeps delivering the financial returns predicted, maintaining security without adversely impacting resources and consolidation ratios is critical. Kaspersky Security for Virtualization delivers a far lighter resource footprint than traditional solutions, optimizing file-level scanning tasks, fine-tuning protection technologies and orchestrating scanning tasks to preserve virtualization platform performance.
Instead of a traditional security agent installed on every virtual machine, Kaspersky Security for Virtualization offers a more efficient way to protect your virtualized environment – placing less load on processors, memory, storage and I/O:
- Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer, KVM and VMware vSphere environments can be secured through a single Security Virtual Machine (SVM) on each virtual host, and a very lightweight agent installed on each VM.
- Alternatively, VMware vSphere environments can also be secured with an agentless security solution – so just one instance of the security software protects every VM running on each virtualization host.
