F-Secure's Virtual Security solution is designed to protect the modern business culture's need for mixed environments. It protects both public and private cloud solutions, as well as virtual servers and virtual desktops (VDI). It offers support for the most common virtual environments: Vmware, Citrix, Hyper-V, and KVM.
Virtual Security is an add-on product for F-Secure Client Security, using a Scanning and Reputation Server to offload scanning to optimize performance and security. Thus, all Client Security features are available for Virtual Security users as well.

F-Secure Virtual Security offers the best protection level for purely virtual, mixed, and hybrid environments. It optimizes performance in virtual environments by offloading scanning to a separate, dedicated server.
Virtual Security allows you to optimize the use of resources in F-Secure products (Client Security and Client Security Premium, Server Security, E-mail and Server Security) by offloading performance-intensive scanning tasks.
The Virtual Security solution offers easy deployment with preconfigured virtual appliances and one-time installation on virtual machine templates.
Virtual Security allows you to offload CPU-intensive scanning operations to a dedicated F-Secure Scanning and Reputation Server (SRS) and reduce CPU and memory consumption on virtual machines.
The lightweight agent installed in clients and servers provides an additional layer of security on top of Scanning and Reputation Server.
