Accomplish more with Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

Go agentless with VMware and Trend Micro

Maximise VM density with security built for virtualised desktops

You’re looking to safely extend the benefits of virtualisation to the desktop, but traditional VDI security solutions can hog resources and cause serious performance problems. With VDI, desktop images can be managed on a server rather than on each laptop/desktop computer, providing great efficiencies, including faster patching and quicker software upgrades. To realise these benefits, IT administrators must use the right security tools to address the unique security challenges and threats that exist in VDI environments.

Trend Micro™ Deep Security™ offers comprehensive, VDI-centric security for virtualised computers that can help improve the security and performance of your VDI servers. And in the process, you’ll maximise consolidation ratios with security solutions designed specifically to handle the rigors of desktop virtualisation. Results like these have helped make Trend Micro the leading provider of virtualisation security.


Whether you are extending your virtualisation successes from servers to desktops or looking for a unified approach for all your physical and virtual desktops, Trend Micro can help you maximise protection and performance.


Agentless security to optimise VDI

Maximise data centre performance and consolidation ratios with Deep Security. True agentless security for VDI—including anti-malware, intrusion prevention, web application protection, host firewall, integrity monitoring, and log inspection—ensures no extra footprint from a security agent impacts your virtual desktops and underlying host. Advantages include:


Trend Micro Deep Security employs agentless technology through a lightweight driver in each virtual desktop. The driver is used by the virtualisation platform to orchestrate staggered security scans and updates instead of requiring a separate traditional security agent in each virtual desktop. This provides the most optimal protection for virtual desktops. Additional efficiencies include:

  • Agentless technology to optimise performance and increase VM densities
  • Vulnerability shielding (“virtual patching”), to address known patch management issues and protect against zero-day attacks
  • Network-level vulnerability shields to plug software holes
