The vast majority of cyberattacks that affect physical machines can also attack virtual machines. Moreover, the risks within virtual environments can be even higher. Although virtualisation can improve IT agility and efficiency, it also adds extra layers of technology. Maintaining visibility of each layer of technology and how they interact can be difficult. Many virtual environments naturally contain a greater number of ‘attack surfaces’, and that gives cybercriminals more opportunities to attack the business.
Kaspersky Security for Virtualization provides a single solution to secure both virtual servers and VDI. Because it supports all the most commonly used platforms – including VMware vSphere, Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Hyper-V and KVM – Kaspersky Security for Virtualization is ideal for heterogeneous environments.
The solution offers two different approaches to specialised virtualisation security – both of which can be run simultaneously on different parts of your infrastructure.
