Always-on Security Provisioning: Auto-Deploy Anti-malware & Threat Protection for VMware Applications

Mitigate “Instant-on” security gaps and rogue IT with always-on security

IT Process Automation & Virtualization enable businesses to self-provision IT resources in a manner of hours or even minutes. It also allows business to provision and decommission virtual assets as needed. These developments increase the risks from rogue and "instant-on" security gaps.

Data Center Security: Server integrates with VMware to automatically deliver agentless anti-malware, agentless network IPS, file reputation services (Symantec Insight) and in-guest file quarantine services via security virtual appliances (SVAs) for newly provisioned and dormant VMs with active security profiles.

Data Center Security: Server features Operations Director which integrates with Data Center Security: Server Advanced, Palo Alto Networks, Rapid 7, and VMware NSX to deliver application-level security hardening during the new IT asset provisioning process.

  • Security virtual appliance (SVA) automatically provisions agentless anti-malware, agentless network IPS, file reputation services, and in-guest file quarantine services for new applications and dormant VMs with active security profiles.
  • Operations Director orchestrates application-level threat protection with security hardening across Data Center Security: Server Advanced and third-party security products (such as Palo Alto Networks and Rapid 7) and data center automation tools.
  • Unified Management Console (UMC) provides a consistent management experience across Data Center Security products.
  • Native integration with VMware vCenter and VMware NSX aligns IT provisioning with security provisioning and provides visibility into the security posture of new applications.

Orchestrate Threat Response: Deliver Agile Threat Response and Remediation

Quickly mitigate risks from zero-day threats and application change events

Security in the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) is different. Applications are abstracted, dynamic, and mobile. Keeping track of a VM guest’s security posture as it is created and decommissioned is complex. The lack of visibility into VM to VM traffic makes it difficult to prevent the lateral spread of attacks once a VM is infected.

When a new zero-day is disclosed, Data Center Security: Server centralizes management of malware definitions and scans. It isolates the suspected malware files and remediates across VMware NSX and VMware vCNS/vShield supported applications.

Symantec Data Center Security: Server also leverages its native integration with VMware NSX to orchestrate application-level isolation and hardening across an ecosystem of third party security tools. These actions enable customers to isolate infected VM guests and stop the propagation of an attack.

  • Hypervisor-based security delivers real-time detection and policy-based remediation.
  • Integration with file reputation services (Symantec Deepsight) mitigates false positives
  • Combines anti-malware, guest and host introspection, and file reputation services in a single solution.
  • Operations Director native integration with VMware vCenter and VMware NSX tightly couples threat protection with security hardening ecosystem

VMware-Optimized Antimalware: Agentless Antimalware Across VMware vShield & VMware NSX

Minimize “security” storms, false positives, & resources tax

Agent-based approaches for scans and signature updates tax network resources, degrade performance, and impose additional memory footprint for each virtual machine posing scalability challenges.

Symantec Data Center Security: Server auto-deploys anti-malware and threat protection services via security virtual appliances (SVA) across VMware vShield/vCNS     and VMware NSX environments. This agentless approach delivers and manages security services from the hypervisor, thus optimizing IT and network resources. Also, Symantec™ Data Center Security: Server integrates with Symantec Insight’s reputation security technology to identify new threats as they are created. Symantec™ Data Center Security: Server also enables quarantine of malware-infected files for further diagnostics or policy-based remediation.

  • Always-on, auto-deploy and scalable security
  • Broad VMware platform-support (vShield & NSX) for agentless anti-malware
  • Centralized definition updates and security scans
  • Combines anti-malware, threat protection, file reputation services, and in-guest file quarantine services in a single solution
  • Operations Director to orchestrate threat protection with security hardening
