Trend Micro Deep Security 8 available now

At VMworld last year Trend Micro already announced their new version Deep Security 8, but now it is finally available.

Deep Security is specifically designed for virtual environments. Its agent-less architecture addresses AV storms, minimizes operational complexity of security and allows organizations to increase VM densities and accelerate virtualization and cloud adoption. Developed in close collaboration with VMware, Deep Security 8 is the first product in its category to offer support for VMware vSphere 5.0 and VMware vShield Endpoint 2.0.

But what’s new in Trend Micro Deep Security 8?
First of all it supports vSphere 5, so customers using Deep Security can finally upgrade their vSphere 4.x environments. Second, DS8 now offers agent-less integrity monitoring for greater virtual server security without added footprint. A third great new feature is a anti-malware agent which extends protection to physical server as well as VMware View environments using local mode.
