Figure 2 below gives an example of ESET Virtualization Security in a sample environment with the following characteristics:
•VMware vShield Endpoints in VMware environment (hypervisor + managed using VMware vSphere)
•VMware Tools installed on each virtual machine
•ESET Remote Administrator 6.3 and higher management server installed
•ESET Remote Administrator Virtual Agent Host
•ESET Virtualization Security integrates components from VMware (vShield library) and the ESET Scanning Engine, registers that with vShield, which creates a dedicated on-hypervisor network to allow rapid file exchange
With this configuration in place, all virtual machines with VMware Tools installed are protected by on-access scanner and the administrator can initiate on-demand scans from ESET Remote Administrator.
