Organizations utilize Symantec Critical System Protection to secure their physical and virtual data centers. Through a combination of host-based intrusion detection (HIDS), and intrusion prevention (HIPS), it allows organizations to proactively safeguard heterogeneous server environments and the information they contain. Unlike other technologies, Symantec Critical System Protection’s granular policy-based controls provide comprehensive protection for VMware vSphere, protection against multiple threat vectors including zero-day and targeted attacks, and real-time visibility and control into compliance.  With the latest release, Symantec Critical System Protection 5.2.9, a deeper integration with VMware and ease-of-use enhancements enable organizations to protect against risks targeted at virtualized environments. With the new release of Symantec Critical System Protection 5.2.9, organizations can:

  • Protect and Monitor VMware vSphere 5.0: Leveraging out-of-the-box policies based on the latest VMware hardening guidelines, organizations are able to completely protect their virtual environment – at the management server, hypervisor and guest.  Symantec Critical System Protection is widely scalable within an organization’s environment with a single management server and console supporting thousands of server agents, vCenter management servers, ESXi hypervisors, and ESXi guests. With the latest release, a single Critical System Protection agent can now monitor multiple ESXi hypervisors in the virtualized data center. 
  • Simplify path to System Hardening (Sandboxing) with an Updated Management User Interface: 
An updated management user interface includes easy access to policy and agents information, as well as powerful search capability. The enhancements make policy management and configuration easier, simplifying your path to system hardening.

In addition, this release includes expanded platform support, comprehensive IPS protection with Process Access Control, and Active Directory integration to simplify enterprise authentication requirements.

Above you refer to VMware vSphere 5.0; our organisation migrated to vSphere 5.1 a while ago now.

Will SCSP 5.2.9 support vSphere 5.1?

Yes and No!

You can get the Client Edition of SCSP when you buy the SPS for Endpoints.

The Server Version (which is the version you normally should buy to fit the products true useablity) you have to buy seperately.
