Virtual Environment Security

Bit9 is the only next-generation security solution optimized for virtual servers and desktops.

The introduction of virtual computing environments has helped IT organizations save money and operate more efficiently. But there is a misconception that less-stringent security controls are acceptable for virtual environments. Not only would relaxed controls leave a gap in your overall security plan, but the operational costs you hoped to save by moving to a virtual environment would be wiped out by remediation costs if you fall victim to a cyber attack or malware.

Bit9 is the only next-generation security solution optimized for virtual desktop and server security, including terminal services, VDI and both persistent and non-persistent implementations. Bit9’s real-time sensor and recorder, cloud-based services and real-time enforcement engine give organizations immediate visibility into everything running on their virtual machines; real-time signature-less detection  and prevention of advanced threats; and a recorded history of all virtual endpoint and server activity to rapidly respond to alerts and incidents. With Bit9, you’ll have top performance and real-time protection without the overhead of scanning or I/O storms. No other comparable security offering provides such deep support for virtualization.

With Bit9 you’ll:

  • Ensure your virtual environments are protected against advanced threats
  • Experience seamless synchronization with your virtual environment
  • Have the lowest resource usage and optimal virtual system performance

Virtual environments are vulnerable to advanced attacks. Bit9 ensures that they are protected. Key features include:

Baseline image templates: Bit9 enables easy provisioning of virtual machines for fast, one-click deployment of cloned images to large numbers of users with optimized initialization. In addition, it seamlessly synchronizes with your virtual environment by maintaining an association between the template and its clones so you can easily discover which computers are based on a particular template and manage them accordingly.

Lowest resource usage to ensure optimal virtual system performance: Bit9 requires no CPU usage or network traffic during initialization of cloned VMs, and clones are immediately recognized when new VMs are provisioned. Non-persistent virtual machines are automatically removed to prevent the buildup of snapshots.

Seamless synchronization with your virtual environment: Bit9 seamlessly synchronizes with your virtual environment by maintaining an association between the template and its clones so you can easily discover which computers are based on a particular template and manage them accordingly.

Comprehensive platform support: Bit9 is optimized for the major virtualization platforms from Citrix, Microsoft and VMware.
