What is ESET Virtualization Security?
ESET Virtualization Security represents agentless anti-malware scanning of virtual machines in virtualized environments using VMware infrastructure and APIs. Agentless protection does not require any security product installed on the guest virtual machines. The scanning tasks are offloaded via VMware Tools to a centralized scanning engine inside ESET Virtualization Security. VMware Tools are equipped with resident protection driver and a dedicated TCP/IP communication network, in which the communication with the scanner occurs. ESET Virtualization Security is natively integrated with VMware vSphere and automatically optimizes the scanning performance based on the hypervisor load. ESET Virtualization Security can be combined with other ESET Endpoint security solutions.
