Hello,

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.

The link you posted is from 2011 and the information contained within is sorely outdated.

My company is now moving away to McAfee with its ePO and the hardware IPS (Network Security Manager) based sensor integration and due to the lack of Linux client management.

 

so is there any update or reason why I can / must keep the existing Symantec Endpoint ?
