Title: Sophos Endpoint Security and Control v9.7: Anti-virus Performance in VMware ESX Virtual Environments

Publication date:   26 August 2011
Document number:    211125


As IT architects scale deployments of virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions, they must be aware of the resource requirements of “always on” and high-use components such as endpoint security systems. In virtual environments, vendors can implement their solution as a client-based agent, where all processing for each client takes place on the client, a virtual appliance that handles the anti- virus (AV) workload or, possibly, some hybrid of the two approaches.

Sophos Ltd. commissioned Tolly to benchmark the performance of its new Sophos Endpoint Security and Control v9.7 within virtual environments. Specifically, this testing focused on the system resource requirements of the Sophos client-based agent when performing on-demand/on-access scanning and virus signature definition update tasks.
