Features:

Security designed for virtual environments
Security designed for virtual environments

We built Sophos Antivirus for vShield to work seamlessly with virtual platforms. Instead of installing a traditional antivirus agent on each virtual machine, we provide a lightweight centralized scanner to secure all the guests on a host. The result is fast, effective protection with lower resource use and simpler management.


High performance, low impactHigh performance, low impact

Sophos Antivirus for vShield outperforms not only traditional endpoint antivirus, but also competing virtualization security tools. In a head to head test, our efficient scanning engine and advanced clean-file caching produced 90% less impact on file server write throughput than Trend Micro Deep Security and McAfee MOVE Agentless. By taking full advantage of VMware's vShield Endpoint technology, Sophos Antivirus for vShield also eliminates scan storms and update storms—spikes in resource use caused by concurrent scans and updates.


Simple managementSimple management

Virtual environments are dynamic, so it can be a challenge to consistently deploy security software and keep it current. Fortunately, Sophos Antivirus for vShield automatically protects every supported guest as soon as it comes online. Create policies, view alerts, request scans and generate reports for all your virtual systems from our intuitive management console. And you can use the same console to manage your Sophos-protected workstations and physical servers, too.


Real-time threat protectionReal-time threat protection

With malware evolving by the minute, it’s critical that your protection can keep up. Our unique Behavioral Genotype technology is able to detect malicious behavior even before specific signature-based detection has been issued. Combine that with Live Protection, which looks up suspicious files in the cloud in real time, and you can be confident your systems will be protected from the latest threats.
