Antivirus for VMware virtual machines

VMware is a virtualization and cloud computing software provider located in Palo Alto, California. It was founded in 1998 by Dell Technologies.

Virtualization technologies of VMware are based on its bare-metal hypervisor ESX/ ESXi in x86 architecture.

A hypervisor is usually installed on the physical server to enable multiple virtual machines (VMs) to run simultaneously.

Multiple Operating Systems can run on one physical server because each VM runs its own individual OS. VMs on the same physical server always share resources, such as networking and RAM.

VMware machines are as prone to cyber-attacks as the main devices, so protecting them is also essential.

So today we’ll be looking at the best antivirus software for VMware machines.
