Bitdefender, the award-winning provider of innovative antivirus solutions, has announced Security for Virtualized Environments (SVE) has been verified as Citrix Ready®. The Citrix Ready programme helps customers identify third-party solutions recommended to enhance virtualisation, networking and cloud computing solutions from Citrix Systems, Inc. The Citrix Ready validation of Bitdefender SVE with Citrix XenServer® and Citrix XenDesktop® assures customers of the comprehensive security solution for virtualised datacentres. The Bitdefender solution protects both server and desktop systems, both Windows and Linux, on any platform.
Bitdefender provides centralised management of virtual appliances creating comprehensive coverage across platforms. Organisations can reduce the financial, logistical and performance costs associated with traditional security approaches. Enterprises and cloud service providers (CSPs) with large scale deployments no longer have to choose between improved consolidation ratios and security.
“Having Bitdefender become a member of the Citrix Ready programme is an important step in our continued efforts to bring our partners and their customers security solutions optimized for the Citrix environment,” said Aimee Catalano, Vice President, Alliance Marketing, Citrix. “The Bitdefender offering will help address the increasing demand for more comprehensive security approaches that are easily deployed and managed.”
“CSPs and customers with large scale Citrix deployments need reliable and scalable protection, and traditional security approaches are simply not going to give the level of trustworthiness, flexibility, and assurance needed especially as these organisations expand their infrastructures and offerings,” said Robert Krauss, Director Enterprise Sales and Alliances, North America, Bitdefender. “Our work with Citrix demonstrates our commitment to helping organisations protect valuable assets and optimise their investment in the Citrix technologies.”
With Security for Virtualized Environments by Bitdefender, Citrix customers have the significant advantages of centralised scanning and management. By using Citrix and Bitdefender technologies, organisations are able to extend protection applied to guest VMs with the addition of memory and process scanning. The lightweight Bitdefender Silent Agent (via patent-pending caching technologies) simultaneously protects virtualised Windows, Linux, and Solaris systems – both servers and desktops.
