McAfee today announced a new agentless deployment option for McAfee Management for Optimized Virtual Environments ( MOVE) AV solution which provides comprehensive defenses against all types of physical and virtual attacks through a single high-performance console. In addition, McAfee MOVE AV is designed to integrate with VMware vShield™ Endpoint and offers businesses standardized security across all major hypervisors enabling complete security management and delivery for virtualized environments.
“McAfee MOVE AV provides McKesson with comprehensive and consistent malicious code protection for our virtual environment,” said Patrick Enyart, senior director, McKesson Information Security, Security Operations. “As we continue to adopt emerging technologies, particularly cloud computing solutions, implementing McAfee MOVE AV provides us with additional security in our virtual environment. The solution makes sizing and deployment simpler and ensures that every system is deployed with the same level of protection.”
The McAfee MOVE AV agentless deployment option addresses the challenges of protecting the virtual environment and keeping it free of malware without the bulk of an agent, resulting in easy deployment and set-up. Both deployment options (multi-platform and agentless) provide powerful, comprehensive, and consistent protection, and are managed and reported by the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator platform.
The integration with VMware vShield Endpoint enables users to optimize performance in Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and virtual server environments based on VMware technology, while knowing that they are completely secure. Virtualization is all about flexibility, efficiency and scalability. McAfee provides adaptive, agentless security protection for the virtual environment without jeopardizing performance, allowing users to utilize the full benefits and power of virtualization.“The combination of McAfee MOVE AV with VMware vShield Endpoint offers customers protection with top-rated security and high performance in their virtual desktop and server environments,” said Parag Patel, vice president, Global Strategic Alliances, VMware. “This enables users to further embrace virtualization and benefit from the cost savings it provides.”
