ThreatTrack Security to Integrate Windows Server Hyper-V Security Management into its Endpoint Protection Suite
VIPRE antivirus solution to offer fully integrated security management for Microsoft Windows Server Hyper-V virtual environments
CLEARWATER, Fla., Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — ThreatTrack Security today announced the availability of the latest versions of VIPRE, the cybersecurity firm’s enterprise endpoint protection solution. VIPRE Antivirus Business 6.5 and VIPRE Business Premium 6.5, featuring support for Windows Server with Hyper-V, can now be fully deployed via the hypervisor, which will enable powerful malware protection for Windows Server Hyper-V virtual server environments, and reduce maintenance overhead and performance degradations.
“As the popularity of Windows Server Hyper-V has increased, we’ve heard from our customers that support for that environment is a must-have, and we’ve delivered,” said Julian Waits, Sr., president and CEO of ThreatTrack Security. “Combining automated workload management with an award-winning antivirus software is a win for customers, and an opportunity for resellers looking to take advantage of Microsoft’s tremendous growth in the server virtualization space.”
“In line with Microsoft’s longstanding and deep commitment to security and our ongoing engagement with third party extensions to our products, we are pleased to see ThreatTrack Security build VIPRE agentless antivirus for Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V environments,” said Brian Hillger, Director, Product Marketing, Microsoft.
Easy, Efficient Security for Virtual Servers
IT departments running Microsoft’s Windows Server Hyper-V to manage infrastructure will be able to run VIPRE in the hypervisor, scanning virtual environments for threats without the performance impact associated with running antivirus on every guest OS. Windows Server Hyper-V excels in workload management, which keeps performance degradation at a minimum without requiring continual oversight. Deploying the VIPRE antivirus agent in Windows Server Hyper-V eliminates I/O bottlenecks, RAM performance degradation and the need to manually stagger scans.
In addition to a host of performance upgrades, users will be able to view their antivirus deployment from a centralized location, managing policies across an entire company with as little as one click. Active Protection can be applied on a per guest basis, allowing for a smarter allocation of resources. These dynamic management capabilities make it easier for IT to identify risk, increase protection around specific assets, and comply with government regulations.
VIPRE combines a small-footprint antivirus with integrated patch management and Mobile Device Management (MDM), enabling end users to take charge of their endpoint security. This premier business antivirus protection addresses a leading threat organizations of all sizes face today – unpatched software – and one the biggest disruptions to the enterprise IT landscape in more than a decade: the proliferation of mobile devices in the workplace. VIPRE provides malware defense for PCs and Macs; low CPU and memory usage; email security and anti-phishing; firewall protection; and malicious website blocking.
