NSX for vSphere - Agentless antivirus

Jump to solution

We are looking in to agentless integration of an antivirus product. McAfee, Trendmicro, etc, all require Guest introspection.

With NSX for vShield endpoint, the Guest Introspection is a free module that you can install.

Now we understand that NSX-V 6.4 EOL is extended by one year till 2023. After that NSX-T has to be used. But is the Guest Introspection module still a free module with NSX-T?

We only need the agentless integration of antivirus.

Since NSX-T 3.0 vShield is the default license:

The default license upon install is "NSX for vShield Endpoint", which enables use of NSX for deploying and managing vShield Endpoint for anti-virus offload capability only.

This is from the release notes: https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-NSX-T-Data-Center/3.0/rn/VMware-NSX-T-Data-Center-30-Release-Notes...
