Trend Micro unveils virtualisation-aware endpoint security offering

Integrates with Citrix XenDesktop and VMware View

By CBR Staff Writer

Trend Micro has unveiled virtualisation-aware endpoint security offering OfficeScan 10.5, which integrates with Citrix XenDesktop and VMware View, and identifies virtualised endpoints and prevents resource contention by serialising scan operations and security updates, avoiding so-called ‘AV-storm.’


The company said that the new version of OfficeScan prevents resource contention and optimises scan operations on virtualised desktops to maximise the number of VMs per VDI host, whether the enterprise is using Citrix or VMware.


The OfficeScan 10.5 is compatible with Windows 7 and provides customers with the option to implement web-reputation on a local, customer network-based server. Web reputation and file reputation, both components of the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network infrastructure, provide real-time protection against the latest threats, the company said.

In addition, the new version allows for more than 20,000 endpoints to be managed from one single OfficeScan Management Server, allowing customers to manage both their physical and virtual desktops from a single management console.


Steve Quane, chief product officer at Trend Micro, said: “With OfficeScan 10.5, customers can realise the full benefits of desktop virtualisation. It also meets the new challenges our customers are facing and uniquely delivers comprehensive protection for both physical and virtual desktops from a single management console.”
