Kaspersky – Security for Virtualization 5.0 Light Agent

Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 5.0 Light Agent is an integrated solution providing comprehensive protection for virtual machines powered by a VMware ESXi, Citrix XenServer or Microsoft Windows Server hypervisor in the Hyper-V, KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) or Proxmox role against various information threats, and network and phishing attacks. The application protects virtual machines with desktop and server guest operating systems.

New Features:

  • There is now support for new types of guest operating systems (Linux and Windows).
  • ProxMox hypervisor is now supported.
  • The application can now operate on a virtual machine that employs Citrix XenApp technology.
  • There is a new licensing scheme based on the number of processors used on hypervisors on which protected virtual machines are running. This licensing scheme uses keys with a restriction on the number of processors. In accordance with the licensing restriction, the application is used to protect all virtual machines running on hypervisors that use a certain number of processors.
  • A new Integrity Monitoring component has been added (available under an Enterprise license).
  • An Application Startup Control component for Windows servers (available under an enterprise license) has been added.
  • There is an updated operating logic for the Application Startup Control component: “White lists” are selected as the main logic for the component as a whole.
