Congratulations to McAfee on being a FINALIST for the Citrix Ready Solution of the Year award!

Even though the award winner won’t be announced until next week at Citrix Synergy, customers are already winning with the one-two punch of Citrix XenDesktop with McAfee MOVE AV for VDI.

The McAfee Management for Optimized Virtual Environments (MOVE) platform, supporting Citrix XenDesktop, provides security tailored to virtualized environments. Rather than running an endpoint security agent in each virtual machine, MOVE Anti-Virus (AV) delivers a virtual appliance that consolidates scanning processes and signature updates outside of the VMs, efficiently protecting all virtualized desktops. MOVE AV for VDI is designed to make virtual desktop security simpler and more scalable for virtual desktop deployments by reducing CPU, memory and storage requirements, and simplifying desktop security and lifecycle management.

Citrix and McAfee are committed to driving the transformation of desktop computing by providing virtual desktops that are “secure by design.” This partnership is the direct result of growing customer demand for integrated security in large enterprise deployments of desktop virtualization.

Through McAfee’s participation in the Citrix Ready program, customers can be confident that MOVE AV and other McAfee system security and vulnerability management products have successfully passed a series of tests established by Citrix, and can be trusted to work effectively with Citrix solutions.
