McAfee today released a new agentless deployment option for McAfee Management for Optimized Virtual Environments (MOVE) AV solution that provides comprehensive defenses against physical and virtual attacks through a single, high-performance console. McAfee MOVE AV integrates with VMware vShield Endpoint and offers businesses standardized security across all major hypervisors, enabling complete security management and delivery for virtualized environments.

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.

As a part of the McAfee security connected framework, McAfee MOVE AV delivers real-time visibility and predictive capability that is enabled by McAfee Global Threat Intelligence, allowing customers to balance the business need to embrace all forms of virtualization while protecting their critical assets and sensitive data, all seamlessly integrated into one console.

Security in the data center environment needs to be designed from the ground up and adopt the fundamentals of virtualization, which include shared resources, optimized performance and low cost of ownership. As part of the McAfee security connected framework, which includes Network IPS, SIEM and server security technologies, McAfee is bringing new products to market optimized for virtual infrastructure using the McAfee MOVE platform.

McAfee MOVE AV agentless deployment option is available now. More information is available at www.mcafee.com/move.
