New Features of AVAST Antivirus
« on: June 14, 2012, 07:10:21 PM »
Hi All,

Does AVAST Software have a planning to create virtualization security which's the virtualization is became one of market needed since more efficiency to reduce the physical servers or PC.

Some of vendor antivirus has this solutions, and they are compete each other in term of virtualization security business. And most of them have a co-operation with VMWare or Citrix.

Cheers,

Well it isn't the same as VMWare, but the paid version have the SafeZone to isolate the real system and there is also the Sandbox where you can elect to run any application sandboxed.

So there is a degree of virtualisation already surely.

This question actually has come up at the avast! resellers meeting in Prague, and is to be addressed tomorrow, when we go through AEA training (I hope)
