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.
