What’s New with Antivirus Solutions for VMware Horizon View Virtual Desktops?


This year’s RSA conference was much larger and more exciting than the previous shows. The three main focus areas were cyber-espionage, Big Data and mobile device security. The VMware Horizon Suite addresses a number of concerns about application and data security and accelerates compliance with industry standards.

Another topic of interest to a number of VMware customers was endpoint security. As you know, a couple of years ago we introduced the vShield Endpoint product. With vSphere 5.1, vShield Endpoint is included in the base platform.

The vShield Endpoint solution provides programmable interfaces that enable partners to streamline and accelerate antivirus solutions for Horizon View virtual desktops. It utilizes the unique introspection capabilities of the vSphere platform to provide comprehensive and efficient access to security controls, while obviating the need for security agents in each virtual machine. Many security vendors integrate with vShield Endpoint to deliver broader solutions such as comprehensive antimalware protection, Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), and Data Leak Protection (DLP). The complete list of partner solutions is available in VMware Integrated Partner Solutions for Networking and Security.
