Bitdefender announces the general availability – starting May 23rd 2017 – of its Bitdefender Hypervisor Introspection solution to protect datacenters and organizations from advanced attacks. With Bitdefender Hypervisor Introspection, Bitdefender becomes the first, and currently the only, security vendor to offer a commercial hypervisor-based security solution. This new security layer is complementary to existing security tools, and offers organizations unparalleled visibility and resilience when facing sophisticated attacks. As described in a recent IDC Perspective report ‘Bitdefender Hypervisor Introspection bridges the security capability gap between context-aware endpoint security solutions and context-unaware network security solutions.’
While previously available in Controlled Availability mode, the product was deployed in customer datacenters in Europe and North America. According to a Bitdefender survey, companies claim the main threats that they’re not prepared for involve outsider attacks (43%) and data vulnerability (38%). Infiltrations often occur because traditional endpoint security solutions have an Achilles heel; a security agent or driver that is present within the protected virtual machine and blind to sophisticated root-level attacks running on the same machine. Bitdefender Hypervisor Introspection is the first truly agentless security solution to work entirely from outside the operating system, by leveraging the unique Citrix XenServer Direct Inspect APIs to gain access to raw memory. Sophisticated attacks aim to hide from endpoint solutions, but still need memory to execute. Inevitably, there is activity in the memory space, even if no security alarms are triggered within the operating system.
“While the hypervisor has enabled data centers to realize major improvements in resource utilization, business continuity and workload isolation, no security vendor has ever leveraged its true security potential,” said Harish Agastya, VP of Enterprise Solutions at Bitdefender.
