Comguard, a Dubai based leading value added distributor for IT security products and the authorised distributor for Kaspersky, today announced the availability of Kaspersky Security for Virtualization in the Middle East region.
Kaspersky Security for Virtualization provides an award-winning anti-malware solution for virtualised infrastructures including servers, desktops and data centres. In addition, it can also manage security for a wide range of devices like physical servers, virtual machines and mobile devices from one, unified security management console that simplifies essential security tasks and improves visibility of security issues.
In addition to plug-and-play compatibility with Kaspersky Lab’s own endpoint security offerings, the new innovation which is delivered as a virtual security appliance also integrates seamlessly with VMware vShield Endpoint to provide agent-less, anti-malware security based upon Kaspersky Lab’s advanced anti-malware engine. Developed from the same code-base as Kaspersky Lab’s award-winning line of endpoint security products, Kaspersky Security for Virtualization avoids the needless complexity and resource-drain associated with security programs that typically “bolt-on” acquired technology for virtual environments. With Kaspersky Lab, customers have a single, unified management platform for their virtual, physical and mobile environments.
