Morphisec Achieves VMware Ready Partnership Status for Horizon VDI Protection


Enterprises Continue to Adopt Morphisec to Protect Virtual Desktop Environments Against Unknown Threats

According to the press release, DTCP portfolio company "Morphisec, a leader in Moving Target Defense, announced that it has joined the VMware Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program for its Unified Threat Prevention platform. This certification by VMware completes a rigorous evaluation process and validates Morphisec as customer fit in the protection of VMware Horizon VDI environments in both persistent and non-persistent pooled modes."

Morphisec, based on Moving Target Defense, consumes no CPU or memory resources, which makes it well-suited to VMware Horizon VDI deployments, enhancing security without adding performance overhead. As a result, enterprises dramatically increase their ability to prevent advanced malware, fileless threats, unknown zero days, and browser-based attacks in virtual desktop environments."

They go on to explain that "VDI resource constraints to CPU and memory make antivirus or detection security approaches unsuitable for individual virtual machines. Morphisec's lightweight architecture based on Moving Target Defense does not require analytics, signature updates, reboots, tuning or online connectivity in order to protect resource-sensitive VDI environments against advanced unknown threats."

[...] VDI environments are extremely sensitive to CPU and memory consumption, making it difficult to deploy traditional anti-malware tools. Morphisec’s lightweight design based on Moving Target Defense, allows for greater protection for pooled non-persistent virtual machines without sacrificing precious VDI resources."

Morphisec is also certified with other VDI solutions on the market.
