Conditions for protection of virtual machines against network threats
December 13, 2023
An SVM with the Network Threat Protection component protects virtual machines that meet the following conditions:
- Virtual machine is included of the NSX Group that is controlled by the NSX Policy, which redirects the virtual machine traffic to Kaspersky Network Protection service.
- The virtual machine network interface is connected to the NSX Segment.
The Network Threat Protection component can scan outbound and/or inbound traffic of virtual machines. You can specify which traffic to scan using the NSX policy, which define network protection settings. NSX policy can be configured in VMware NSX Manager Web Console or in VMware vSphere Client console (depending on the type of VMware NSX Manager you use: VMware NSX-T Manager or VMware NSX-V Manager).
