Architecture for VMware NSX

Figure 2 below gives an example of ESET Virtualization Security in a sample environment with the following characteristics:

VMware NSX Manager installed in VMware environment

Guest Introspection service installed

VMware Tools with Guest Introspection driver installed on each virtual machine

ESET Remote Administrator 6.4 and higher management server installed

ESET Remote Administrator Virtual Agent Host 6.4 and higher

ESET Virtualization Security integrates components from VMware and the ESET Scanning Engine, registers that with NSX, which creates a dedicated on-hypervisor network to allow rapid file exchange

With this configuration in place, all Windows virtual machines with VMware Tools installed are protected by an on-access scanner and the administrator can initiate on-demand scans from ESET Remote Administrator.
