Hypervisor Introspection (HVI)
Bitdefender was the first to develop Hypervisor Introspection (HVI). A groundbreaking security approach, HVI introspects the memory of running virtual machines using Virtual Machine Introspection APIs in Xen and KVM hypervisors. By applying security logic, HVI searches for attack techniques, such as buffer overflows, heap spray and code injection, to detect and block malicious activity before an attacker gains a foothold on targeted systems. In leveraging the hypervisor, the technology needs no software within protected virtual machines, allowing complete insight without sacrificing isolation.
HVI can be downloaded and used for free. For production use, Bitdefender advises organizations to purchase Bitdefender Hypervisor Introspection Enterprise Support.
