Virtualization

How secure are your virtual environments?

 

The introduction of virtual environments enables IT organizations to save money and run more efficiently. However, there is a misconception that less-stringent security controls are required for virtual environments. Not only does this leave a gap in your overall security plan but the operational costs you hoped to save by moving to a virtual environment could be wiped out by remediation costs.

Bit9 is the only trust-based security solution optimized for virtual desktops and servers, including terminal services, VDI and both persistent and non-persistent implementations. By allowing trusted software—and nothing else—to run, you’ll be confident that your organization is protected against advanced threats. You’ll enjoy top performance and security and real-time protection without the overhead of scanning or I/O storms. No other comparable security offering has this level of support for virtualization.

 

Baseline Image templates: The Bit9 Security Platform enables easy provisioning of virtual machines and fast, one-click deployment of cloned images to large numbers of users with optimized initialization. In addition, 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.

Lowest resource usage to ensure optimal virtual system performance: The Bit9 platform 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 build-up 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: The Bit9 solution is optimized for the major virtualization platforms from Citrix, Microsoft and Vmware.
