Symantec Workspace Virtualization protection against virus and malware
Hello to all the SWV community,
Can someone please explain how secure SWV is, regarding the protection it provides against virus and malware programs trying to run out of the isolation layer, and thus gain access to the underling os ?
I have seen some comments and magazine review telling that the older version, formerly Altiris SVS, was not meant to provide security, compared to some competing sandbox solution, and malicious code can easily run outside of the baseline system.
This KB article
seems to confirm this, but it's old news.
Can someone tell if the latest versions of SWV are "vulnerable" to the above attacks, or new features like Layer Isolation
can solve the problem ?
