What does VDI awareness in Trend Micro OfficeScan 10.5 imply?

November 10th, 2010 | No Comments | Posted in Security, Software, Trend Micro

One of the new features of Trend Micro OfficeScan 10.5 is “Virtual Desktop Infrastructure awareness”.
But what does this mean? Trend has implemented two features, to ease the performance impact of running anti-virus in a virtual environment.

First of all, before performing a full system scan, OfficeScan will check with the server if other systems in the environment are also running a full scan. In order to avoid multiple full system scans in the same environment.

Second, they implemented the option to scan a virtual machine template. And save the results as a cache (which will be used when performing a full system scan).
