"This signifies to customers that the Anti-Evasion Platform can be deployed in production environments with confidence and can speed time to value within customer environments.” Kristen Edwards, director, Technology Alliance Partner Program, VMware
PETACH TIKVA, Israel (PRWEB) December 10, 2018
December 10th, Petach Tikva, Israel - Minerva Labs, today announced that it has joined the VMware Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program and has achieved VMware Ready™ status for its Anti-Evasion Platform. This designation indicates that after a detailed validation process Minerva's solution has achieved VMware’s highest level of endorsement and is supported on VMware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) for production environments.
“We are pleased that Minerva's Anti-Evasion Platform qualifies for the VMware Ready™ logo,” said Kristen Edwards, director, Technology Alliance Partner Program, VMware. “This designation indicates that the solution has met specific VMware interoperability standards and works effectively with VMware cloud infrastructure. This signifies to customers that the Anti-Evasion Platform can be deployed in production environments with confidence and can speed time to value within customer environments.”
“Enterprises are increasingly turning to VDI for providing a standardized, operationally-predictable and cost-control desktop experience to their employees,” explained Erez Breiman, CTO and co-founder, Minerva Labs. “Yet, the nature of virtualization solutions can make it challenging to employ robust anti-malware controls within each virtual machine. Due to the performance impact that security solutions can have on VDI environments, virtual guest machines are often left unprotected or with significantly weaker controls. By using Minerva's Anti-Evasion Platform, organizations can protect the VDI guest virtual machines against evasive malware and by that extend the same level of endpoint protection to their virtual machines as they do to their physical machines.”
Minerva’s agent is extremely lightweight which makes it well-suited to VMware Horizon VDI deployments and supports all Windows operating systems (including 32 and 64-bit), enhancing security without adding any performance overhead. As the result, enterprises dramatically increase their ability to prevent infections and the associated data breaches for virtual environments.
The VMware Ready program is a co-branding benefit of the Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program that makes it easy for customers to identify partner products certified to work with VMware cloud infrastructure. Customers can use these products and solutions to lower project risks and realize cost savings over custom built solutions. The TAP program includes best-of-breed technology partners with the shared commitment to bring the best expertise and business solution for each unique customer need.
Minerva's customers can now conveniently find the Anti-Evasion Platform within the online VMware Solution Exchange (VSX) at https://marketplace.vmware.com/vsx/solutions/minerva-for-vdi. The VMware Solution Exchange is an online marketplace where VMware partners and developers can publish rich marketing content and downloadable software.
