Bitdefender Hypervisor Introspection has been awarded Best New Technology at Orlando’s Citrix Synergy 2017, a prize that acknowledges innovative and buzz-worthy products that excite judges and conference attendees.
The award recognizes products that will have a significant impact on IT shops and administrators, with judges evaluating them based on innovation, value, performance, reliability and usability. Bitdefender Hypervisor Introspection received high praise for detecting advanced threats designed to dodge traditional security measures, by protecting workloads from below the operating system.
Judges’ remarks: Bitdefender Hypervisor Introspection adds a layer of antivirus and antimalware below where that software typically runs. This allows IT to detect threats that could elude traditional security measures.
As the first-ever hypervisor security layer, Bitdefender Hypervisor Introspection can scan and monitor raw memory in real time, securing workloads from advanced, sophisticated and targeted attacks. This unparalleled visibility represents a paradigm shift in the industry, as it helps fortify data centers against zero-day attacks by addressing the context versus isolation problem that traditional security solutions have been struggling with for years.
“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. “Bitdefender Hypervisor Introspection is a technological breakthrough that delivers something unparalleled for the security industry and practioners; leverage the hypervisor and get into God mode against advanced attacks.”
Bitdefender Hypervisor Introspection is also generally available to anyone interested and deploying the technology within their infrastructure. For more information about Hypervisor Introspection, deployment requirements, or simply to request a demo, please check out www.bitdefender.com/hvi.
