Bitdefender integrates with VMware to address growing market demand
In a new move of security innovation Bitdefender has recently announced that its Security for Virtualised Environments now integrates completely with VMware vShield 5 Endpoint for agentless antimalware.
The old way of securing virtualised datacentres relied on a traditional antivirus that generated high operating costs and significant performance bottlenecks through poor resource utilisation. The growing market demands for integrated security for virtualised environments is faced head on by Bitdefender with a fresh approach to security to combine award winning antimalware technology and VMware vShield 5 Endpoint resulting in maximised consolidation ratios without sacrificing security. Plus a considerable selection of additional advantages; agentless antimalware with centralised scanning, memory and process scanning, management capabilities on a single virtual machine instance and extended protection for virtualised servers and desktops guest systems running on Windows, Linux or Solaris.
Parag Patel, Vice President, Global Strategic Alliances, VMware, has congratulated Bitdefender for meeting all the necessary requirements for integration. "The combined virtualisation and security expertise of VMware and Bitdefender will deliver ongoing value to our customers by offloading key antimalware functions to a secure virtual machine for improved performance."
Bogdan Dumitru, CTO of Bitdefender, notes that "given the complexity and growth of virtualised environments, traditional endpoint security approaches are highly inefficient, lacking in scalability and quickly proving to be ineffective. Working with leaders in virtualisation, our security solutions leverage technologies like VMware vShield to optimise performance and ensure that enterprises protect their valuable data, while reducing financial and operational burdens associated with other security approaches."
