Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Light Agent Service Pack 1 version 184.108.40.20677 was released March 6, 2016.
Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Light Agent is an integrated solution providing comprehensive protection for virtual machines powered by a VMware ESXi, Citrix XenServer, KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) or Microsoft Windows Server hypervisor in the Hyper-V role against known and new threats, network and phishing attacks.
Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Light Agent protects virtual machines with Microsoft Windows server and desktop guest operating systems.
To ensure correct installation of updates requiring a restart of the Light Agent component you must consider the method used to create protected virtual machines. If Light Agent is installed on protected virtual machines which are part of a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), correctly select the Installation on the template for temporary VDI pools check box. The following list provides examples of standard VDI and the feasibility of selecting this check box:
For virtual machines that are part of a pooledXenDesktop catalog, part of a dedicated XenDesktop catalog using personal disks (Personal vDisk) or a part of an automated pool of VMware Horizon View and that are linked clones:
For virtual machines that are part of a dedicatedXenDesktop catalog using local disks or a part of an automated pool of VMware Horizon View and that are full clones:
Release of antivirus database updates (required to protect your computer/server/mobile device)
Providing technical support over phone / web
Release of patches for the application (addressing detected bugs)
To run Kaspersky Security for Virtualization on an SVM, the following minimum system resources are required:
For correct work of the application in the virtual infrastructure, one of the following hypervisors must be installed:
It is only possible to connect Light Agent to an SVM and ensure the correct functioning of the application if you have deployed Light Agent and the SVM on the platforms for which they are intended. That is, connecting Light Agent deployed on Hyper-V or Citrix platforms to SVMs installed to VMware hypervisors is not supported. Conversely, connecting Light Agent deployed on a VMware platform, to SVMs installed on Hyper-V or Citrix hypervisors is not supported.
For installation and correct work of SVMs installed on a VMware ESXi hypervisor, VMware vCenter server version 5.5 or 6.0 with all available updates must be installed in the virtual infrastructure.
To deploy an SVM on a KVM hypervisor running the CentOS, you must remove or comment out the Defaults requiretty line in the /etc/sudoers configuration file of the hypervisor's operating system.
Installing an SVM on a Microsoft Windows Server (Hyper-V) hypervisor that is not a part of an Active Directory domain requires that Windows Remote Management (WinRM) version 3.0 be installed on the hypervisor. WinRM 3.0 is a part of the Windows Management Framework 3.0 distribution that is available for download on Microsoft official website.
Protected virtual machines require one of the following guest operating systems:
Core Edition is not supported for the following operating systems:
Supported versions of Citrix XenDesktop, Citrix PVS, and VMware Horizon.
