Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 vs. Trend Micro Deep Security 8 Anti-virus Performance in VMware ESXi Virtual Environments for 07 May 2012
As IT architects scale deployments of virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions, they must be aware of the resource requirements of “always on” and high-use components such as endpoint security systems. In virtual environments, vendors can implement their solution as a client-based agent where all security processing takes place on the client, a virtual appliance that handles the anti-virus (A/V) workload or, possibly, some hybrid of the two approaches.
Symantec Corp. commissioned Tolly to benchmark the performance of its new Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) 12.1 within VMware ESXi 5 virtual environments vs. Trend Micro Deep Security 8.
