Main features of Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 2.0
The application protects the file system of the guest operating system of a virtual machine (hereinafter also referred to as "virtual machine files"). The application scans all files opened or closed by the user or another program on a virtual machine for viruses and other threats.
- If the file is free from viruses and other threats, Kaspersky Security grants access to the file.
- If the file is found to contain viruses or other threats, Kaspersky Security performs the action specified in its settings; for example, it deletes or blocks the file.
The application scans virtual machine files for viruses and other threats. Virtual machine files should be scanned regularly with new anti-virus databases to prevent the spread of malicious objects. You can run an on-demand scan or schedule the scan task.
Network attack detection
The application scans the network traffic of virtual machines for activity typical of network attacks. Upon detecting an attempted network attack targeting a virtual machine, Kaspersky Security blocks the IP address from which the network attack originated.
Storing backup copies of files
The application allows storing backup copies of the files that have been deleted or modified during disinfection. Backup copies of files are stored in Backup in a special format and pose no danger. If a disinfected file contains information that becomes fully or partially unavailable after disinfection, you can attempt to save the file from its backup copy.
Anti-virus database updates
The application downloads updated anti-virus databases. Updates keep the virtual machine protected against new viruses and other threats at all times. You can update anti-virus database on demand, or schedule the update task.
