The following components are required for Kaspersky Security integration with the VMware virtual infrastructure:
VMware vShield Endpoint ESX Module

This component is installed on the VMware ESXi host. The component ensures interaction between the VMware vShield Endpoint Thin Agent driver installed on a virtual machine and the EPSEC library installed on the SVM.

VMware vShield Endpoint Thin Agent

The component is installed along with VMware Tools on guest OSes. It intercepts the information about user actions with files on VM and transmits it to VMware vShield Endpoint ESX Module.

VMware vCenter Server

This component is intended for administering ESXi hosts and tasks in VMware infrastructure and participates in the deployment of Kaspersky Security.

VMware vShield Manager

This component ensures the installation of the VMware vShield Endpoint ESX Module on VMware ESXi hosts and registration of SVMs.

Kaspersky Security interacts with the VMware virtual infrastructure as follows:

  1. The user opens, saves or executes files on a virtual machine protected using Kaspersky Security.

  2. The VMware vShield Endpoint Thin Agent intercepts information about these events and relays it to the VMware vShield Endpoint ESX Module component installed on the VMware ESXi host.

  3. The VMware vShield Endpoint ESX Module component relays this event information to the EPSEC library installed on the SVM.

  4. The EPSEC library relays this event information to Kaspersky Security installed on the SVM and provides access to files on the virtual machine.

  5. Kaspersky Secure Virtual Machine scans files opened, saved or executed by the user on the virtual machine for viruses and other threats.
