Security built with your virtual infrastructure in mind

Virtualization has changed the way organizations optimize resources and have become more agile by adapting quickly to strategic business demands. A growing number of organizations are using virtualization to generate substantial cost savings by reducing their hardware footprint. A virtualized environment, however, cannot be secured with solutions that protect traditional physical environments. Only Sophos delivers everything you need to secure your virtualized servers and your virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). Choose from our agentless scanning, powered by VMware vShield Endpoint, or our full-featured endpoint security optimized for VMware vSphere, Citrix Xen and Microsoft Hyper-V.

Agentless Antivirus for Virtual Servers and Desktops

Sophos Antivirus for vShield works seamlessly with virtual platforms. Instead of installing a traditional antivirus on each virtual machine, you get a lightweight, centralized scanner that secures all guests on a host, giving you faster performance with lower resource use. Get automatic cleanup as soon as a malware is detected. Sophos immediately quarantines the file and a cleanup agent is automatically deployed on the guest VM to discover and remove all remnants of the threat both on the disk and in the memory. Sophos Antivirus for vShield automatically protects all your supported guest virtual machines as soon as they come online.

Endpoint Protection for Virtual Desktops

Get complete, layered security for your virtual desktops with Sophos Endpoint Protection solutions. A single, efficient client incorporates antivirus, firewall, HIPS, data loss prevention, web protection and more – saving you on system resources. Stagger scan times with our Virtualization Scan Controller to avoid scan storms. Incorporate the client into your gold image for no-fuss deployment. Easily manage protection for all your virtual desktops, traditional workstations, and servers with Sophos Enterprise Console.

Seamless Server Protection

Sophos Server Protection gives you the flexibility to deploy whatever combination of agentless and client-based protection meets your server room needs. Our full-featured endpoint client runs with a low memory footprint on popular hypervisors like vSphere, Hyper-V and XenServer. Get the option of agentless scanning with a lightweight centralized scanner that features automatic protection of new VMs, efficient centralized updates, elimination of "scan storms" and more. Manage all of them through a single interface with Sophos Enterprise Console.
