ESET’s new agentless security solution ESET Virtualization Security for VMware vShield environments avoids troublesome AV storms.

ESET®, a global pioneer in IT security for more than two decades, today announces the launch of ESET Virtualization Security with a press release. This brand new VMware vShield-based agentless solution combines an ESET Virtualization Security appliance with ESET Remote Administrator to deliver ESET’s award-winning scanning core allied with proven management ability.

ESET Virtualization Security will be available from today in all regions except North America, where it will be launched on March 1st, 2016.

According to a Gartner Magic Quadrant* survey in 2015, “about 75% of x86 server workloads are virtualized”.  Virtualization brings countless benefits to companies, but without adequate protection of virtual systems it can be more dangerous than it seems.

The purpose of ESET Virtualization Security is protecting sensitive data and to solve the main problems that companies experience when adopting virtualization, such as unprotected virtual servers, the need for multiple vendors to protect physical and virtualized environments, potential performance impacts and complicated licensing.
