McAfee has released an update to its Data Centre Security line that aims to better protect servers and virtualised systems.
The company said its new line of Data Centre Security products would team its antivirus tools with application whitelisting and blacklisting protections for servers, databases and virtualised systems as well as virtual server hyperviser deployments.
The updated products include the Date Centre Security Suite for Server, Virtual Desktop and Hyperviser systems as well as the Database Server Protection platform.
The company said the update would include new features designed to provide security for servers and virtualised systems while maintaining minimal use of resources and not compromising system performance.
"The combination of whitelisting, blacklisting and virtualisation in a single solution, offers an optimal security posture for protecting servers in the data centres," said Candace Worley, McAfee senior vice president and general manager for endpoint security.
"These solutions address the need in the industry to offer solutions that provide the highest level of protection with minimal impact on the resources they are deployed on and in a wide range of customised licensing options."
McAfee's latest release arrives as vendors are increasingly looking to develop protections for virtualised system.
As enterprises increasingly adopt datacentre virtualisation technologies for private cloud deployments, experts have warned that traditional security protections and practices are failing and putting firms at risk of data loss.
