So for the guys out there who have read a few of my blogs, they know that before I came to eGroup I spent 11 years on the customer facing side of IT, administering storage, VMware, Citrix, etc.. One of my roles during that time period was also managing antivirus on desktops and servers, a fairly critical task because no one wants to have a major virus outbreak. It was never a fun task though, DATs were a pain, so was versioning, and hoping that it was working and that it was actually updating never made you feel good! Well, as I made the jump to my new career at eGroup I had my eyes opened to a new world of technology that I had not been exposed to previously, one of those was Trend Micro’s Deep Security. As a VMware administrator I played around with different antivirus solutions trying to find one that didn’t impact CPU utilization on my hosts and virtual machines severely, if it was an antivirus solution I tried it at least once and yet all of them seemed to impact my VM’s CPU ranging from about 10% to sometimes closer to 30%. I always thought this was ridiculous and that there had to be a better way, well apparently the guys at Trend thought so as well and came up with a solution. Read more after the bump to see how it works! Read more
