Technical Information

View Datasheet

  • File-level anti-malware

    Kaspersky’s award-winning anti-malware engine provides automatic, real-time protection for every virtual machine – on-access and on-demand.

  • Cloud-assisted security

    The cloud-based Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) can identify new threats in as little as 0.02 seconds.

  • Network protection

    Kaspersky Security for Virtualization includes special technologies to protect your virtual machines from network threats.

  • Shared Cache

    For typical environments, many files may be duplicated across multiple virtual machines. Whereas some security products will scan every instance of a file, Kaspersky Security for Virtualization includes a Shared Cache feature that means each file is scanned only once – and the verdict of the scan is stored, in order to eliminate the need to scan the same file on other virtual machines running on the same virtual host.

  • Central management console

    Kaspersky Security Center gives administrators a ‘single-pane-of-glass’ view of all devices that are being protected by Kaspersky technologies – including virtual, physical and mobile devices.

  • Flexible security and management tools

    Different security settings can easily be applied to different groups of virtual machines. For example, you may choose to exclude scanning functions if they are not relevant to a particular application – so computing performance is not affected by unnecessary processes.

  • Security that’s specifically developed for virtualized infrastructure

    Because Kaspersky Security for Virtualization has been developed specifically for virtual machine security, it helps businesses to maintain high virtualization density and high performance – for improved return on investment.

  • Virtual machine security that places less load on your computing resources

    Instead of having to install a full security agent on every virtual machine, Kaspersky Security for Virtualization offers a more efficient way to protect your virtualized environments – so you place less load on your processors, memory, storage and I/O:

    • Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix Xen and VMware environments can be secured by a single virtual appliance on each virtual host and only very small agents installed on each virtual machine
    • Alternatively, VMware environments can also be secured by an agentless security solution – so just one instance of the security software protects every virtual machine that’s running on a virtual host

    Kaspersky Security for Virtualization is ideal for data centres that are running a combination of different hypervisors.

  • Award-winning anti-malware delivers superior security for your systems

    Kaspersky Lab’s latest anti-malware engine combines signature-based, proactive and cloud-assisted technologies, to deliver superior detection rates – including protection against zero-day threats.

  • Additional layers of security protect you from network threats

    Kaspersky Security for Virtualization provides network-level protection for virtual traffic and includes powerful remediation capabilities to disinfect malware infections.

  • Easy-to-use, central management console saves time for your IT team

    A single, unified administration console lets your IT team centrally manage the security of all your virtual machines – plus other Kaspersky security applications you’re running on physical infrastructure and mobile devices. By making it easier for your team to manage hybrid environments – that combine virtual, physical and mobile platforms – Kaspersky helps you to roll out virtualization projects at the pace that suits your business.

  • Flexible licensing helps you control costs

    Because Kaspersky gives you a choice of ‘per machine’ – including ‘per desktop’ and ‘per server’ – or ‘per core’ licensing options, you can choose the most cost-effective licensing model for your business or large-scale data centre.
