  • Azure offers several options for anti-virus solutions, but it’s up to you to manage it. For example, you might need a separate subscription for antimalware software, and you’ll need to decide when to run scans and install updates. You can add anti-virus support with a VM extension for Microsoft Antimalware, Symantec Endpoint Protection, or TrendMicro Deep Security Agent when you create a Windows virtual machine, or at a later point. The Symantec and TrendMicro extensions let you use a free limited-time trial subscription or an existing enterprise subscription. Microsoft Antimalware is free of charge. For details, see:

    1. How to install and configure Symantec Endpoint Protection on an Azure VM.

    he client is installed as a security extension by using the VM Agent. On a new virtual machine, you'll install the agent along with the endpoint client. On an existing virtual machine without the agent, you'll need to download and install the agent first. This article covers both situations.

    If you have an existing subscription from Symantec for an on-premises solution, you can use it to protect your Azure virtual machines. If you're not a customer yet, you can sign up for a trial subscription. For more information about this solution, see Symantec Endpoint Protection on Microsoft's Azure platform. This page also has links to licensing information and instructions for installing the client if you're already a Symantec customer.

    2. How to install and configure Trend Micro Deep Security as a Service on an Azure VM

    The client is installed as a security extension by using the VM Agent. On a new virtual machine, you'll install the VM Agent along with the Deep Security Agent. On an existing virtual machine that doesn't have the VM Agent, you'll need to download and install it first. This article covers both situations.

    If you have existing subscription from Trend Micro for an on-premises solution, you can use it to protect your Azure virtual machines. If you're not a customer yet, you can sign up for a trial subscription. For more information about this solution, see the Trend Micro blog post Microsoft Azure VM Agent Extension For Deep Security.
